View Full Version : Leaf and a 12

Found these yesterday along some stone walls bordering an abandoned man made pond the round thing with 12 on it is made of lead and has a ribbed edge. :confused: The leaf is copper with the stem up :confused: on the leaf. I think it’s from a hat.

the lead piece could be a scale weight used for measurement , a poker chip or a bag seal , the other object looks gray and brittle like pewter and with the two protrussions on the one side makes it almost look like somekind of decorative mount (as in colonial horse decoration or to leather ) just my couple of opinions

Are there any holes on the edge where a wire could go through?? It could be a bag seal like Del said. Nice finds!!

the object with the 12 on it looks like a lead seal to me
