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. Diameter: 20.2mm, Thickness: 8.7mm, Weight: 17.99gms

Ceramic building material drainage tile. Salmon pink hard oxidised fabric. A small segment from a tubular tile of estimated internal diameter 100mm with longitudinal triangular-section ribs externally. Probably made by extrusion, a process introduced c.1840; the ribbed form does not appear amongst early tubular tiles so a modern date is assumed. This sherd was kindly identified by Wallace Collyer of the North Lincolnshire Pottery Research Group. Suggested date: Modern, 1940-1980 Thickness: 14.7mm, Weight: 39.73gms

Copper alloy insole. A sheet metal plate of nearly straight-sided form with rounded ends, and retaining the marks from the heads [5.5mm diameter ] of two small nails on either side at one end, probably the heel. The finder kindly suggests this may be an insole from a work boot. The form is indeed comparable to that of work boot soles going back to medieval times. As the finder's suggestion is informed by family experience [as this reporter understands it] a modern date is suggested. Suggested date: Modern, 1900-1930.

Copper alloy toy. Toy wristwatch, formed from two components of pressed metal: the outermost includes a sub-rectangular frame with a winding knob modelled in low relief and with simple scrolled ornament; with an indented back plate fitting snugly into it and revealed by a cut-out in the display face as an oval dial. There are four tiny triangular lugs at the corners of the front part which are bent back to retain the back. The sharp stubs of clasps or loops relate to a strap [now lost]. This presumably represents a lady's watch, and would thus be a toy for a girl. Wrist watches entere…

Lead alloy toy horse fragment. Hollow cast left hind leg of a horse, probably modelled at a scale of 1:32 or 54mm; patinated inside and out. The size and naturalistic modelling both point to this being part of a Britains toy soldier, probably a cavalryman or a cowboy. Suggested date: Modern, 1900-1960.

Lead alloy toy rocket fragment. Cast tail of a solid cast cylindrical or cigar-shaped object with four equidistantly spaced fins at its end. A groove or paired ridges extend longitudinally between fins on opposite sides of the object. This is probably the tail of a toy rocket or aeroplane with a detachable head: a paper percussion cap would fit between the head and the body of the rocket, and would explode when the head made impact. This reporter recalls both rocket and aeroplanes on sale in toyshops of the 1960s; whether there were earlier versions is uncertain. Suggested date: Moder…

Copper alloy cannon shell fragment. A cylindrical casing with a solid indented base, retaining part of its propellant charge (in the form of tiny cylindrical fragments of diameter 1.3mm, possibly cordite - not retained[!]). The upper part of the casing bears a ring of rust c.50mm above its base and is raggedly broken above that. The diameter suggests this would have been for an automatic cannon of 20mm calibre, which was part of the armament of some fighter planes of the Second World War.The finder kindly suggests this to be anti-aircraft ammunition; however, ant-aircraft guns on the …

White metal coin. A greyish scyphate flan with a plain obverse and a concave reverse, with extensive traces of reddish surface plating or gilding on both sides. The gilding of copper alloy flans is more familiar to this reporter, and the white metal core may suggest this to be one of the imitations of ancient coins which are intermittently reported from north-eastern Lincolnshire. The metal is probably a lead alloy. Suggested date: Modern, 1990-2010. Obverse description: Plain, with greater loss of coating. Reverse description: Celticised horse right, with fewer comma-shaped com…

Lead alloy toy. Solid cast semi-flat toy farm animal, representing a large quadruped, probably a horse, naturalistically modelled at a scale of c.1:40, though now lacking its legs and head. Extensive traces of black paint remain. The semi-flat form of toy figures was characteristic of Continental, particularly German, manufacture before the First World War. The heyday of the toy farm, however, was between the Wars, and the survival of paint may suggest a more recent, earlier 20th-century, date. Suggested date: Modern, 1930-1939.

Lead seal. Kosher meat seal. Cast disc with a slot in one edge and a bifurcated slot in the opposite edge, to serve as a drawstring attachment. One side bears the stamped motif of a Star of David [or Solomon]. The other bears the numeral 350 in modern style. The metal retains its grey tint, suggesting a recent [20th-century] date. These seals confirmed that meat had been slaughtered according to rabbinical regulation. Suggested date: Modern, 1900-1950. Diameter: 15.2mm, Thickness (at rim): 4.5mm, Weight: 2.71gms

Copper alloy badge fragment. A cast decorative mount masking a tensile clip probably intended to secure a badge on a vehicle radiator. The front is in the form of a wimpled and robed figure with full hanging sleeves, probably a nun. The nun is lifting her robe to reveal an unseemly extent of her left leg. The modelling resembles chip-carved work with bold strokes rendering folds in drapery and the facial features modelled in perfunctory style, with the arched hollows of the eyes emphasised. She is presumably a naughty nun. The figure stands on a cylindrical housing with a drilled aper…
