Any opinions on age of this item ?
« on: January 28, 2015, 02:19:53 PM »
I was out with Acoustic for a session this morning, the weather was atrocious and we chucked it after an hour or so. We were on a new pasture field and the finds were few and far between. I found this item which I think is a handle of some sort ,  I originally thought it was some sort of horse gear, but not so sure now.

It has a round hole through the bottom part which would allow it to hinge, so I was thinking a handle of some sort.

Just not sure about age though. Im thinking Georgian or later, but would appreciate another opinion or two . ;)
