Popped out yesterday in the rain and mud . Didnt find alot but enjoyed every minute. I think the lead button has some age to it if anyones clued up on buttons please let me know.

Looks like a medieval 1300 / 1500 lead button, looks like a squashed loop on the back :thumbsup:

Better pics would help to be sure, quite a few on the PAS

Well done on getting out.
The NOBEL 200 badge was intriguing.
Collectable badge from a 3 wheeler car 1958-62. Here is some info,

Great and unusual find.
Cheers, :thumbsup:

Absolutely agree with Steve on the age of the lead button. Good find :thumbsup:
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking

An interesting selection there. :thumbsup:
Fake coins can often be more interesting than the real thing, the half crown is likey made of zinc alloy.

Well ive never heard of that car before . Must be rare now. Wonder how the bonnet badge ended up in the middle of the woods . Might be worth a tart up with enamel paint .

Had never heard of them before either.
Looking at the link, production run appears to be very small.
If you get a giant signal in those woods, you never know.
Thanks to your find, i and probably others have learned something new.
Cheers, :thumbsup:

Maybe digging deeper you might find the rest of the car is still there. :lol:
The Nobel car badge to the right person could be worth a fair bit of money to people like Car restorers who do them up. Its not exactly a common Car so I`m sure if you put it on the Auction site it could be worth a lot. I`d bang a silly figure on there like £40 , and accept offers. You never know.

Actually I`ve just been reading about that car and to be honest I`d say its an ULTRA rare car badge and To a Car badge collector it could be worth a great deal now I`ve read up on the company its come from because they only made a few cars anyway so the chances of lots of those badges being still around are VERY slim indeed I`d say . Anything that`s gone long ago ,and now doesn`t exist ,is usually classed as "rare" and rare means costs money to buy.
There is of course a later present day company that now go under "Nobel" and they make sports " Dream " cars .
