The relic I nearly didn't dig!


Yay! At last I’ve found something old and to think I nearly didn’t dig it. Phew! I’m so glad I did.
Has anyone else come across one of these?

This is a ships water tank lid. (Solid and heavy). These were made from 1860 - 1930s.

Below is a link about them.



Really cool and unusual find. Love the detailed writeup in the link too.

Would look good as a backpiece in a display

Not the sort of thing that blows around in the wind - could indicate a site with some extended occupation.


Nothing like starting big l say !! Cool find
Keep on swinging
