Exciting Find can anyone ID?
« on: September 20, 2018, 07:37:43 PM »
Hi Guys

Was out in Falkirk today and got this. Didn't realise until later what I think it is. Wasn't even sure it was a coin. Here's it cleaned just under cold tap lol. Looks roman but I've never seen any come up in Scotland so maybe Celtic? Just bronze not silver so if it is that old it's survived extremely well. It's got a small hole in the top and bottom as if it was maybe attached to a necklace or something.

Would love for someone to find a similar one or the exact one so I can say that's what it is and the age of it as looks really old.

Funny how thick it is.

It looks like it may be a piece of jewellery styles
On ancient coins but not actually an ancient coin.

Send Photos  in to TT just to be sure mate
