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 H…

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 componen…

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.

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.

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 apert…

Copper alloy badge. A pressed metal badge of flat discoid form with the stub of some part of its light pin gear on the back. The display face bears a border in the form of a laurel wreath modelled in two-dimensional relief, with a plain central field bisected by a horizontal cabled cord.

Lead alloy toy fragment. Hollow-cast fragment of a naturalistically modelled horse and rider at a scale of 1:32 or 54mm. The subject is probably a mounted cowboy: represented here by a booted leg with a carbine holstered alongside it, but with a short textured saddlecloth distinct from those associated with cavalry regimental uniform. The metal retains a grey tint suggesting a relatively recent date. The modelling and scale are consistent with manufacture by William Britains. The hindquarters of the horse and one side of the rider's legs is all that remains. Suggested date: Modern, 190…

Lead alloy toy. Solid cast naturalistically modelled toy sheepdog, at a scale of 1:32 or 54mm, with finely depicted surface detail and visible mould lines. Three lower legs are lost. The metal retains a grey tint, suggesting this to be of recent date. This probably accompanied a toy farm set. William Britains introduced their perennially popular toy farm set in 1923, though, as a solid figurine, this was probably made by one of the firm's rivals, or as a novelty.

Copper alloy anti-aircraft shell fragment. A small fragment of a thick casing, thinned to a sharp edge on one side, diminishing in its thickness from this side, and broken raggedly on all other edges. The most distinctive features are a pronounced curvature of the fragment, and a pair of adjacent ridges close to its thinned edge. The ragged fractures have probably been caused by explosive force - such fragmentation would be difficult to achieve using hand-tools. Suggested date: Modern, 1939-1945.
