Another 15 signal from today, not deep but the field is very stony and a right pain to dig in most parts.

It looks as though it might be a lid or cap from something, but I just feel that it has some age to it going by the thickness of it? At first I thought it might have had a screw thread on the inside, but they look more like ridges and I don't think that it would actually work as a thread.

Maybe it's just my eyes or maybe the light, but it looks as though there might possibly be a snake design on the top? BTW, I think it's made from copper/copper alloy.

I've taken lots of photos from different angles to try and help. Thanks very much for any help. :thumbsup:

I'm really not sure Cath. At first I thought it was just mangled on the top, but it isn't. It seems to be purposely made in that shape and the inside is flat. It is an odd one.

Any chance its a type of bronze? I did wonder if it was some sort of cap off WW2 era ordinance?

Thanks for all the replies, I have indeed been told that it's likely to be something modern and fire damaged. :thumbsup: :D
