I had such a great response from you good people before so I thought I would like to show these two finds and Hopefully hear your thoughts and opinions :thumbsup:
Thanks and I hope that you may think that they are nice little finds also :Luv Ya:
Both were found in the same pasture filled around Blackburn
The first I think is a lapel pin. Don't know the age. The second is what appears to be a lovely little bronze coin which I have not been able to age or identify either :?:

I like the pin brooch, is it silver plated? It looks Victorian onwards to me. Nice find. :thumbsup:
The other I have no idea at all.

Is that "ITALY" I can see stamped on the first image of the bronze, bottom left corner?

Certainly nothing gold there. I can see numbers in the lower left of first coin. Very odd.
Just backing up other posters.. definitely something there. :thumbsup:

thanks for the comments i can see something on the coin that does kind of look like Italy a bit disappointed as i thought it may have been something well old still chuffed with the pin though :thumbsup:
