Lead thing with letters and numbers?
« on: May 01, 2018, 16:04 »
Gday. Went for a swing today and my only "good" find was this object. Its about the size of a 50c coin and presumably made of lead. It looks to have been stamped a few times as you can see in the concave side "MS 35 55". The other (Convex) side has no markings. Any idea of what it could be?

Hi Mick , it looks like some sort of seal , lead was used to make security seals for the post office & railway & I guess other seals as well , that's my guess anyway :)  Gazza

Lamp posts ( sec poles ) have things like that to show when they have been inspected for damage. Don’t remember if they are lead but they are pushed into a cavity.

Thats a good theory too Rwork. It was fount next to an old pub site from the mining days. The pub is no longer there. Someone had hit it before I and gotten a bunch of Chinese coins, a silver coin and some pennies. They said I should find something but they cleaned up well and didnt leave anything behind lol but I did find this bit amongst some gorse.
