I managed a few hours out yesterday afternoon on a field that hasn’t produced anything really special. It’s returned a few bits - a single Roman coin, some buckles and a few Georgians.
This item turned up and I initially thought it was scrap, but after a clean up, noticed it has a blade type edge. ( on the edge I’ve marked up) It looks molten, so could have been in a fire?
It’s probably just scrap, but I thought I’d check first. Any ideas?

Interesting. Is there anything on the back?
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking

Not really, much of the same.
I struggled to get a pic that shows the sharp feather edge to it. I was thinking maybe a razorblade, but then I could have been drinking some of your tipple :rollinglaughing: :rollinglaughing:

Turn it upside down and it looks a bit like a dogs head and shoulders.?

Interesting art !
