Dig St Andrews 23rd Sept
« on: September 24, 2018, 12:20:11 PM »
Here is my stuff from yesterday, I think the fob is possibly an early Pocket Compass.  I prized the back off and everything inside was black crumbs except there is a metal spring in the back casing.  I have yet to manage to get the glass and front separated to clean it.



You dig?

Good collection!  Lovely wee pencil topper. Top right, is that the end of a toy cannon? The compass thingy might be a fob-watch-style slide rule...  Well dug!  :D

I think it is a pigeon ring, quite interesting it says 1939 on it along with some other characters but am thinking probably just part of a code for a pigeon. Almost thought it was silver for a minute.
The bit top right could be the end off an old toy canon or even a chess piece, not sure.
 
Nice to get a turner where I can see both the thistle and CR.  The G vi ship halfpenny was not in great shape, the other coin is the usual featureless burned mess.
