When posting in "What Is It?", please give members the information they need to help identify your find:

1.  Post sharp closeup photos of both the front and the back if possible.

2.  State the actual size of the item.  Also, if possible, put something with it in the photo for scale:  a common coin, a ruler, etc.

3.  If there are any inscriptions which cannot be easily read in the photos, type them in full in your post.

4.  If there are maker's marks, numbers, symbols, or other marks on the back which are not easily seen in the photo, post a closeup or a drawing or rubbing of them.

5.  Indicate the composition of the item. Brass, silver, gold and what kt if known.

6. Also where it was found 1880 homestead, picnic grounds from the 1940's etc.

? Do not deliberately withhold any information just to "have fun" seeing if members can guess correctly.


? Finally, if someone identifies your item or provides other helpful information, take time to post your appreciation? and maybe send a PM to say, "Thanks!" too.

 Remember we really want to help so the more information we have the better answers we can provide.

Ah, but my dear Smoking, Choking Baby faced Seldom, sometimes items migrate. I recently found an English Penny dated 1865 in a local sand pit playground otherwise known as a Tot Lot.

But yes, it is helpful to have a starting point for the guessing game. It can also be a heap of fun and fancy trying to figure out what we're looking at.

It's all about that moment when metal that hasn't seen the light of day for generations frees itself from the soil and presents itself to me.

Makes you think don't it. I found a new Buck knife in a tot lot a few months back what is a 5 yo doing with a big Buck knife?

I figure someone kept it in his or her possession as a good luck token or a keepsake of some kind before it found its way through a hole in a pocket. Perhaps a child was given the coin by a collector to whet an appetite for numismatic interest. Or maybe Jack the Ripper dropped it on his most recent incarnation.

Hey, it could happen!
