A local Brechin co-op token , and Alexios thingumy. Is it half a crotal bell? Is it a wee cup? Hmm. But the decoration is beautiful.

No hammy's for me but I got a nice 1918 silver 3d and a St Petersburg Russian flax seal (my first Russian!) to go with the musket balls and halfpennies etc
You dig?

Another one taken over by the Nox!
