Morning All,
I found this yesterday - I got quite excited asa I thought it might be an early silver coin folded over but its not! it was in a really trashy field too but is till think it might be silver - not sure if it passed the foil test I thought it smelt eggy but that might be my nose playing tricks on me.

It looks deflated as it seems to have a funnel of sorts and i'm wondering if it may have formed a "drop" or "droplet" of sorts.
I'm a bit baffled - have any of you seen anything like it? Any knowledge gratefully accepted and ta in advance!

All the Best

It looks hollow, maybe the end of a batton?

Looks very interesting! A bit like the top of those hollow silver handles they had for boot hooks, etc. Could be much older though!

Your FLO is going to be busy on your next visit!
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking
