Bawdy pipe tamper - over 18s

mods - please remove if too risqué
Hi all,
after a 3 week period of finding very little, I decided to visit an old faithful permission that always guarantees a return of modern pre-decimal coins, even though it's already given 200+ in 6 months.
This was an attempt to get my mojo back and it didn't fail me. After a short 2 hour session, I had 12 coins from a George II grot, through Viccy pennies and half to modern coins. I also found a what initially looked like a nice gold St Christopher, but turned out to be made of cheap aluminium.

The 2 best finds are: A nice copper alloy button with decoration around the edge and what I think is a mother of pearl inlay.

and a lovely bawdy pipe tamper showing both male and female genitalia x;

They told me I’d never be any good at poetry, because I’m dyslexic, but so far I’ve made 3 jugs and a vase.

Pipe Tampers are very much sought after by 'smokiana' collectors. This is in contrast to the more traditional smoking related items, Pipes, Cheroot Holders, Tobacco Jars, Smoker's Cabinets etc which took a dive as a result of the Stop Smoking campaign

I'd say you have an excellent example which is deserving of an inconspicuous place in your over 18's display case. Regards ss47 ::g

That would also be sought after by swimmermania collectors, it clearly shows a diver taking a deep breath before immersion, not quite sure where the rest of his face is, the reverse clearly details the 1800s fashion for " bobble" swimming hats,,,,very nice find shaggy :D ::g
