Item 2 for ID if you can help please. I did think Palm guard but should there be a hole in the centre?
The front is convex, the back is very pitted and looks like it was originally flat.At its thickest point it is 9mm.
The pitted back
Another one of the back
dont think its a palm guard,but a few of these tied around the edge of a rabbit net would do the job,the nets were placed over a rabbit hole and when the rabbit bolted it would get tangled up.
just like too add they are still used today,with ferrits put down a hole to chase rabbit and when they ran out they were caught in the net.hunter would spread a few nets around to ensure the rabbit got caught in one of them.
great photos ladyluck
