Viccie disc & broken bling

Post by Bootneck45RM »

Hi all,
In amongst a host of other recognisable finds were two little pieces I wasn't sure about.
I was on pasture and in 3 tone mode with the m.m.k. when I received one of those double rings (as if you've come across a coin on its edge) first to come out was the little coin/disc, then checking the hole the tiny gilt piece with glass insert (fractured) was located.
Both were within inches of each other but at differing depths.
I could see that the disc was toasted on one side whilst the front was Victoria with a date of 1891 or 1897, the only part word I could see was "commemorative" so am presuming its a disc that may have been worn on a neck or wrist ((because of the small section missing that may have been a loop).
Could anyone comment on its I.D. please.
Also does anyone think the gilt piece is a fob watch winder or similar.
The glass is fractured on the reverse and the inner section has been contaminated.
Any comments on I.D.s would be gratefully received.
Thanks
Len
