ID Challenge No.17 (14-7 to 17-7-19)

What ho,

Went out for a spin yesterday but had to cut it short due to Great Aunt having to retire injured. There's not enough meat on her to make spares for a budgie and the hard-baked ground proved too much for her scrawny frame, so after a few holes and a couple of displaced vertebrae, that was that ;;z

However, there was one decent find and here it is for your consideration. Just a couple of clarifying notes to go with the images of this partefact:

The wide (top) part has flat sides (images 1 & 2).
There is a slightly raised ridge running down the centre of the inside face (image 3)
While it's nearly all solid bronze, there is a white, crumbly infill in a portion of the top. The hole in the infill seems purpose-made and I only cleared out the dirt from it. It doesn't go all the way through (image 4).

Found on pasture at a depth of only a couple of inches. New permission, so no previous finds history.

I think I know what it is (which isn't what I first thought it was) and if you'd like to have a stab then you'll find the form HERE.

Don't forget, there's no limit on the number of guesses you can have (I've changed my own mind umpteen times on the thing). It's one of those items best held in the hand, but hopefully there's enough detail to enable a fair whack at it. Let me know by PM if there are any further images which you think might help.

The thread will be closed for entries after 5.00pm on Wednesday, 17th July. If I remember :D

Flumps? Nevverrerdovvum, but I see what you did there ::g . Here, for no other reason than I'm nowhere near as subtle as you but I happen to like them, is a plate of whelks.
