Record ID: LANCUM-B5FE32
Object type: TOY
Broad period: MODERN
County: Lancashire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Cast copper alloy minature cannon, similar to guns of the eighteenth century. The stepped trunions suggest the gun was intended to be mounted in a gun carriage, so possibly a copy of a naval gun. Many of these cannons were fired and are often found with exploded barrels from mis-fires. There are good parallels on the PAS database, SUSS-68AA74, YORYM-6A2D04, LANCUM-EC68C8 are similar. The length is 112mm, the thickness is 19mm and the width is 25mm. The gun dates sometime between c1650 and 1900AD, but probably more likely dating to the last half of eighteenth, or first half of the nine…

Cast copper alloy miniature cannon, similar to naval guns of the later nineteenth century. Originally it would probably have been mounted on either a gun carriage or wheels.

There are good parallels on the PAS database, SUSS-494CB2 is nearly identical and LIN-8FE5B6, LANCUM-440420, IOW-8B08B7 are very similar. The length is 52mm, the thickness is 19mm and the width is 24mm. The gun dates sometime between c17…

Modern copper alloy finger ring made from a George VI penny. The ring is D-shaped in cross-section, convex on the outside and flat on the inner side. The outer side is corroded but appears to have no surviving decoration. On the inner side is the remains of the coin's design. The inscription can be seen, reading ONE PENNY with the helmet of Britannia between the words, and then the date: 1940. It seems to have been deliberately shaped to retain these elements of the design. It is 20.0mm in diameter, 4.9mm wide and 1.4mm thick, it weighs 2.21 grams. Given the date of the penny, this…
