Without any scale, I’d guess .303

Lammerlaw’s the man…

Could possibly be a 50.cal looking at the size. Only a guess mind you. Is there anything on written on the bottom ?
Some more really nice finds there Roy. What do you do to clean them up with ?
Keep on swingin !!

gday clarky. when the silver is so tarnished its difficult to remove,unlike coins where scratches count jewelry is not so visable so after a sonic clean they come out of that almost a light gray colour,but like silver coins soaking in anything will not bring out the shine.what i do is use a brass wire wheel on the dremal it works a treat,without any scratches to the naked eye,then its on a polishing wheel with silvo.intresting is that bracelet is marked 835 a belgium or german standard never seen it before.
