Those are fascinating!!   I jealous because you "Blokes" have some much old history to poke around in.  I hope "blokes " isn't an insult.

Hey, Lee.....I think you're on the right track on the pin thing.  It looks like the pinback to hold a ribbon or a suspended badge like the ones that were popular in the late 19th century.

As for the coin, it's in pretty rough shape without much detail showing, but I think the square within a square is probably rare enough that it can help us nail it down a bit.   Who knows, once we find the first solid clue, the rest may fall in place.

Congratulations.   That 'Ship penny' sure looks like a match to me, too.    I'll add the website to my list of favorites.   

Given the number of old coins you find, you might want to add these websites (if you haven't already):
