Help me ID this little guy

Post by Soulstorm » Sun Dec 01, 2019 6:55 pm

I dug this up on a mixed sand and shingle beach in the south-west UK. It was only a few inches deep. There had been rough and windy weather in the days before.

I used a Garrett Ace 250 on all metal mode at roughly half sensitivity. There is a picture of the target ID it came up as in the pictures below.

(Any questions? I am happy to answer).

Your photo host is playing up so I can't see the pictures anymore. The image that flashed briefly up looked like a lead cowboy from the mid 20thC. ::g

Perhaps it's 'Freddie Kruger'.

Somewhere in my memory is 'Gentleman Jack' - a boxer....the pose might be relevant?
