Be keen to hear if you get an ID on that copper tag. I found the same thing up here, only stamped Mt Eden 1901 119

Nice ages on the coins.

that lead toy looks very english bobby unusual if it is guns were not issued to police ,may still not be.

Dig that lead toy. Awesome find.
Does look like an English Bobby, maybe home guard.

I’m thinking boar war from memory they had those sort of hats

Is the 1909 the date of issue?

Presume so. Mine came from the ‘turn of the century’ layer at my local. Was deeper than the mid 1900’s stuff I’ve had there.

Hit a washout at a beach north from here.
