Couple of items for ID please

Post by howard86 » Sun Jun 18, 2017 5:25 pm

Hi all,

I was going through some buckets that I tended to dump mostly junk in from ages ago. They'd got water in and mud and it had all gone rather sludgy and disgusting. The rusty stuff in there had stained a lot of stuff brown.
These two things caught my eye amongst the millions of buttons and bits of scrap.

The first definitely looks like its a skull and maybe was brass. Maybe something off a horse's gear?

The second I've no idea, reminds me in shape of a roman brooch but probably not. Its dried out now and is a vague faint green colour. Reasonably heavy.

Any ideas what they may or may not be? :)

Haha the original Nike tick :D good one :D =))
The skull thing is hollow I should have mentioned, but I guess its a bit of a mystery anyway. Never found anything like it before :)
