Before creating an ID request please note you must:
1. include at least 2 photos of the item, both sides of a coin, or two angles of other items.
2. Include a ruler or other form of scale that clearly displays the scale in cm or inches. A coin or written dimensions is not acceptable.
Further information will also help, full guidance is below:
H - Have at least two good sized clear photos.
A - About your detecting day, type of land, depth found.
M - Measure items by doing the pics next to a scale or ruler.
M - Machine used and settings are interesting to other users.
Y - You will always get a better ID if you supply more information.
Had a couple of hours out yesterday (pasture field as usual), and came away with a lovely 1951 Half Crown and a 1770 (G3) Half Penny (I do like it when I can actually get the date from coins that old, most of the G3 coins I've found so far have been in a sorry state).
But there was also this, which has me completely stumped. It's certainly not old, made of copper/alloy. Perforated one side, screw thread, decorative "battlementy" bits on the side, what seems to be a press button... all I can think is maybe part of a coffee percolator? Any ideas very welcome!
