County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Parts of an unidentified object or objects of Post Medieval to modern date. The fragments are made of layers of lead sheet and pieces of leather, help together by copper alloy rivet and roves. There are two large pieces and eight less complete pieces. The two larger pieces are made of three sheets of lead stacked up, with several layers of leather on the top and bottom. The rivets fixing them together go through all the layers. One end of the pieces is rounded and the other is straight, but it is not clear which are breaks and which (if any) are complete edges. It is also uncertain …

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Copper alloy mining workers pay cheque token or tally with the words: PAY CHECK stamped in the legend around the number '7' on the obverse of the token. The reverse is blank and the token has been perforated for suspension. These tallies were used as part of a system for ensuring the correct pay by 'checking' in and out of the workplace prior to machines being produced for this specific purpose. 'Checks' were often 'holed' for hanging on boards. In mining, for example, a number on the check was personal to each miner and prior to going down the pit, the miner would give one of his tal…

County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Broken cast copper alloy bit from the end of a soldering iron rod, square in plan and section and rectangular in profile, which was used for tinning or soldering in order to repair copper alloy vessels and other items. There is some iron corrosion product at the broken square end of the bit, which is where a steel pin would have been connected to the copper bit. The other end of the steel pin would have been connected to a wooden handle. The copper bit tapers to a pointed end which has been flattened and rounded through heating and use, to apply a lead/tin alloy solder. The material a…

Object type: SEAL
Broad period: MODERN
County: York
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete lead bag seal of modern date. The seal is comprised of a single disc of metal which is perforated by a hole running across its diameter. The holes would have been for wire or textile ligatures which were used to secure a bag. Stamped text can be seen on both sides of the seal though it is extremely worn with breaks rendering much of the text illegible. One side reads [----]//[-]HR//VI and the other reads [---]B//[--]//C.T.//1832. The text is likely to represent the name of the Quality Control Officer and possibly a code for the location at which the Officer worked or the…

A complete lead bag seal of modern date. The seal is comprised of a single disc of metal which is perforated by a hole running across its diameter. The holes would have been for wire or textile ligatures which were used to secure a bag. Stamped text can be seen on both sides of the seal; one bears three lines of text which appears to read A.ERO[-]//XNHb//H7 (the N is in retrograde). This text is likely to represent the name of the Quality Control Officer and possibly a code for the location at which the Officer worked or the registered number of the sealing tongs he used.

Object type: FERRULE

County: North Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Copper alloy Possible ferrule. Cast conical cylinder with an apical loop formed by crimping of its narrower end. This terminal bears a drilled hole of diameter 2.5mm, and its stepped sides suggest it was intended to limit movement to a single plane. At its wider end, the cylinder bears scars indicating the position of a transverse rivet with a head diameter of 2.3mm - its further extent is lost, though its other end is visible, showing it went through the object off-centre. A similar, larger, object retaining degraded wood (NLM-662EE3) was reported along with this example; despite…

Copper alloy and Wood Possible Ferrule. A cast cylindrical sheath retaining degraded wood within. A transverse rivet of diameter 1.6mm (only its ends remain) passed through the sides of the cylinder to secure a wooden rod or dowel; this feature was kindly noted by Brian Kearsley. The end of the cylinder bears a robust integrally cast lug with a drilled hole for suspension of diameter 2.5mm; the stepped sides of the lug appear intended to limit movement to a single plane and its sides and top are filed, perhaps to assist this movement. A similar, smaller, object (NLM-6638E0) was repo…

Object type: SEAL MATRIX
Broad period: MODERN
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Cast copper alloy fragment from a 'fob' seal of late Georgian or Victorian date (1750-1850). All that survives is the abraded die element which is enclosed within a hoop of copper alloy. The die is formed of a ceramic paste which has decayed in the soil. The reverse of the die is filled with a ceramic adhesive or fine grained cement. The die is abraded and so some detail is lost; the best suggestion of the device is a plumed shield on which is emblazoned a rampant lion. It is possible that the plumed feathers device could alternatively be interpreted as a debased crown. The design is …

County: North Lincolnshire

Copper alloy Plaque. Cast concavo-convex shield-shaped plate bearing numerous punched holes of diameter circa 1mm on its convex face. The finder kindly notes these spell out HOME / SWEET / HOME over three lines. This phrase was first popularised as the title of a sentimental ballad written by John Howard Payne in 1823; then as a soldiers' song in the American Civil War; and as a text for children's needlework samplers - most of the letters may be rendered in straight lines. It was perhaps the latter source this object draws upon. The concave face may suggest attachment to a mug or b…

Copper alloy, painted Iron Stand. Shoe-shaped plate with a triangular platform and oval-ended handle; three round section pins of diameter 8.3mm and length 30mm (one lost) were set in round holes with edges lightly countersunk on the upper side of the plate. Jennifer Dunne, Collections Assistant (Social History) for NorthLincolnshireMuseum, kindly confirms the opinion of the finder that this is probably an iron stand for the temporary storage of a heated flat iron, and comments it may be for a small iron used for specialised tasks or unusually shaped objects such as hats. Paint surv…

Lead Alloy, with coat of paint or tar Possible Vessel fragments. Two fragments of a cast vessel with curved body of thickness 2.6mm and a thickened rim, the latter possibly serving as a lid seat. A thick black paint or tarry coating is splashed on the outside surface of both fragments, and may suggest its use rather than a decorative finish. Suggested date: Modern, 1800-1900. Dimensions for larger piece: Height: 23mm, Estimated diameter: circa 140mm, Thickness (rim): 5mm, Combined Weight: 18.71gms.

Copper alloy Possible Nozzle fragment. Cast tubular object with a shoulder above which it continued at a diameter of 14mm; this further extent is lost. This might come from a pair of bellows, or from gas supply equipment or domestic water piping. The good condition tends to indicate a recent date. Suggested date: Modern, 1875-1950. Diameter (approximate): 30mm, Height: 17.5mm, Thickness: 1.3mm, Weight: 11.93gms.

Lead Alloy Toy. Cast toy bowl with a pedestal foot and everted rim. This object appears apt to use in a dolls' house kitchen. An external mould line is visible; the bowl is now slightly squashed and part of its upper body is lost. The vessel form is distinct from that of Post-Medieval objects reported from London, and is suggested to be of later date. Suggested date: Modern, 1850-1950. Diameter (approximate): 25mm, Height: 24mm, Thickness: 1.1mm, Weight: 5.46gms.

Copper alloy, painted Possible Plumb Bob. Cast point with four radial tapered fins or vanes in opposed pairs, one larger (25.5mm across) and one smaller (15mm across). The object is collared above the vanes with a circular top (of three quarter inch diameter) and traces of a central hole or socket of diameter 5mm, now filled. The surfaces of the fins are stippled with fine punch marks, and patches of lime green paint occur over all but the upper surface. The object appears apt for use with a theodolite, whereby the point would be suspended over a reference point. Suggested date: Mod…

Copper alloy Shell fragment. Two cast fragments of estimated diameter 90mm, from a conical casing. The fragments bear at least 12 bands of fine screw thread within. On the outer face a numbered sequence between 8 and 17 on one fragment and 1 and 8 on the other accompanies a subdivided scale of units of circa 1.5mm. The finder notes that the gradations were intended to set the fuse of heavy anti-aircraft shells to the altitude at which they should explode. Suggested date: Modern, 1916-1945. Weight (combined): 36.12gms.
