Two unknown objects ID

Post by acoltismypassport » Mon Jul 17, 2017 5:34 pm

Amongst the crowd of modern change I unearthed today (that paid for the viognier and hummus!) I found these two objects. Both were quiet deep, in the range of 8 - 10 inches. The first has an appearance not unlike a modern interchangeable blade (perhaps an axe or plane?), but I'm not sure about the second. I realise they're likely of zero value, though my curiosity is getting the best of me. After all, it's all history, is it not?

what is "viognier and hummus" sounds like something one unearths from the lower depths of the compost heap?

Ha, I was confused with the food description - sounds far too posh for me - bacon butty all the way.

First one would have been a triangle. Quite common. Something to do with farming I guess. Every field seems to have them.


For some reason my Whites Classic use to love them. Dug loads with that machine.


Second one I have no idea but again looks agricultural

Good taste in wine. Good for the summer but you can keep the Hummus.

Thanks Koala! I wouldn't be surprised if they came off some kind of farming equipment.
