An incomplete military badge dating to the end of the 19th century (c1830-1870). The badge is manufactured from pressed sheet metal and depicts a bugle badge.

Lead alloy toy fragment. A cast tubular object with a discoid plate on top or underneath with a central pit, and with one of a pair or expanded lugs remaining at its end, with a pair of rounded bosses on its outer side suggesting engagement with another component.
