Back out on the river


#481

Interesting find this morning would love it to be a sword hanger hope one of you can ID for me


#482

I don’t think you’re too far off the mark with a sword hanger, could be for a pistol?

On second thoughts and after a quick Grooble, I’m going to agree with sword hanger… Jammy bugger.


#483

Thanks same spot that I found the powder flask… Could be connected


#484

Connected - possibly literally. I was thinking it was the sort of thing that would have come from there. Good stuff.


#485

Can you tell what is inscribed on the front or is it just a mark


#486

What a great find there Chris. Lucky bugger.


#487

The four lines seem to be inscribed but the roundish part just a blemish


#488

Had a bit of a poke around the river on the low hoping for a couple of farthings🙄 only good find was the snake buckle (2nd for me) I found the piece that attached to the belt first and gave the hole a sweep before backfilling and got a faint beep the snake was probably another 150mm deeper

Onya… I spent three hours vainly hunting the sanded spots up here for a toy fire engine…and that’s it. Planning on a marathon session on Butt Flat on the midnight tide tonight


#490

Funny I’ve been thinking about that spot… With the full moon you should fit in with the rest of the people walking backwards and forwards steering at the ground :rofl:


#491

You mean the dudes picking fights with the lamp posts and shouting at no-one in particular…:laughing: Gawd, I love endemic nightlife.


#492

Gosh that snake is good nick.


#493

that has to be the best snake ive ever seen.iam guessing from the 60s.ahhh mini skirts…just had a flash black…


#494

Might be an officers buckle. Looks like it is brass. The one I have is less ornate and probably muck metal.


#495

Standard snake belt buckle. Inferior ones could be from boys belts or more commercial belts. The Military ones were brass.
