Lead tag. A sub-triangular tag cut from cast lead sheet of a regular 2mm thickness, with a pierced round hole towards its apex and the stamped or incised numeral 64 on one side, in fairly modern style. Patinated. The finder kindly suggests this to be an ear tag from livestock: a rigorous numbering system should probably imply a post-war date. Suggested date: Modern, 1950-2000.

Copper alloy lid. Concavo-convex probably pressed or die-stamped circular lid. The exterior surface bears a finely imprinted decorative motif of overlapping close-set compass-drawn lines, reminiscent [to this reporter] of designs drawn with the mechanical toy from the 1960s known as Spirograph. This design, too, was rendered with mechanical aid. The interior bears traces of white metal plating, and has a broadened flat rim. Suggested date: Modern, 1900-1930.

Lead alloy finger ring. Cast unusually thick square section band, thickened and slightly expanded at its bezel which appears to bear a small oval panel with the motif of a 'tick', as used by a popular brand of sportswear. Traces of gilding or of gold paint appear on both the inner and outer surfaces of the band. The diameter of the ring could suggest its use by a child, so it might be a toy. Suggested date: Modern, 1900-2000. Internal diameter: 16mm, Band Width: 8.4mm, Thickness (at bezel): 4.9mm, Weight: 10.27gms

Lead alloy toy fragment. A solid cast pair of H-section posts or girders modelled at an indeterminate scale, possibly between 1:32 and 1:72, springing from either end of a short flat-based stand from which another, ancillary, object also protrudes, perhaps representing grass.

Lead alloy toy. A solid cast model representing a seated hen, modelled in naturalistic three-dimensional style at a scale of c.1:32 or 54mm. It is uncertain whether the head is lost, or whether the figurine represents a chicken seated on the nest with its neck drawn in. A prominent mould line runs along the back of the figure, which may have been cast in an open mould. If so, this would tend to distinguish it from professionally made or hollow-cast miniatures, and may even point to its being a homemade copy of one of these. As a plaything, it would take its place among farm animals, a …

Lead alloy toy fragment. Solid cast semi-flat figurine representing a farm animal, probably an unsaddled horse, naturalistically modelled at a scale of c.40mm. The head and lower legs are lost. The semi-flat figurine was a halfway stage between flat historical models made in Germany from the later 18th century onwards, and the three-dimensional figures promoted by French and English makers from the early 19th and late 19th centuries respectively. Farm animals became a popular line after the introduction by English manufacturers William Britains in 1923 of their Farm Set, which garnered…

Lead alloy toy soldier fragment. A cast arm from a toy soldier modelled at a scale of 1:32 or 54mm, probably a product of Britains, a leading English toymaker from shortly after its establishment in 1894. A crooked arm cradling the butt and part of the barrel of a rifle has an oval loop at its upper end to fit a corresponding lug at the right shoulder of a hollow cast figure; a mould line runs around the object. The rifle carried at the slope equipped many of Britains' most popular model sets, including detachments of marching Guardsmen and Highlanders. Suggested date: 1900-1950. Heig…

Copper alloy dice. A dice for a simple gambling game. A cast solid cylinder of hexagonal section with one rounded end with a low knop bears a narrow [diameter 3.8mm] integrally cast handle with a fluted sleeve projecting from its other end. Six flat sides bear incised notation as follows: PUT 1 / TAKE 1 / ALL PUT / TAKE ALL / PUT 2 / TAKE 2. This object served as a spinning dice, rotated by gripping the handle between index finger and thumb.

Copper alloy grenade fragment. Cast discoid filler cap from a hand grenade, with a border standing proud on its outer side, and with a rounded and possibly sheared convex surface on the other. Although its iron casing was designed to fragment, the filler cap usually remained in one piece when the grenade exploded. This was presumably deposited in the course of military training, an activity from which this is almost a 20th-century type fossil. Suggested date: Modern, 1939-1945.
