Is this an old gaming piece?

Post by Chilgrove » Sun Dec 01, 2019 2:01 pm

Found last Sunday using my XP Deus and Hot program. 11" black coil, V5.1. Stubble field. It's only a piece of lead but I did wonder if it could be an old gaming piece. Resembles a domino. 12mm thick.
I have not seen anything online that suggests it could be a gaming piece however.

The holes go right through? Looks like something that was nailed or riveted to something?

Yes Oxgirl, the holes go right through. Probably one for my scrap bin.

Very odd. The patina looks like it has some age to it. ::g

I’d keep it in my ‘might find out what it is one day’ box. As Fred says it does look old. Might be best to bag up though as it’ll looks dusty and lead dust is dangerous ::g
