So on a day I couldn't detect, i decided to sort some lead items that have been adding up, namely musket balls, farm tokens, bag seals and loom weights when.... this jumped out. Remember finding it and knew more research required so here I am. Letters and unusual shape any ideas?

Interesting. Are there letters on it or is that my imagination? I see a capital H and I :Thinking:

Are you sure?.

What makes you think you have the item the correct way up?

You could very easily have the image the wrong way up and the letters are "I H" rather than "H I", which make a very different proposition when trying to research the item.

We never said which way round, just that both letters are present :Luv Ya: .

Annoying ones though as, as you rightly say, they could be either way round :Thinking:
