Even better. I measured it and it is .577 inch diameter. Thanks
I think the marks show it as assayed at the London office in 1926
Nice finds. I’ve seen a Chinese coin from the late 19th, early 20th Century with the square hole and the thick border on it.
Not sure what it is but it is silver (The lion mark), was assayed at Birmingham (the anchor) and the date mark is for 1918 (t). Can’t find anything about the maker’s mark (E.Z)
The blue one is George III so some time between 1760 and 1820. You can just see Georgivs III (Latin Georgius = George)
The bald bloke is (I think) George V (1910 – 1936).
Spink has 2 similar coins with the 2 keys under the shield –
Number 2262 – Henry VII (1485 – 1509) Minted at York by Archbisop Bainbridge
Number 2263A – Henry VII
I have also seen a Henry VIII with the keys – also York mint
Nice button. It looks as if it is a Livery Button belonging to a member of staff working for the the Whitmore family who had links to Shropshire.
Hi Steve – Superb find.
After a bit of googling I think it is a replica annointing spoon as Ladyluck mentioned. The date stamp appears to be for 1910 which ties in nicely with it being the year that King George V was crowned so it may have been a piece of memorabelia bought by or for some one to commemorate the coronation.
I think the maker’s mark is for James Dudley (JD in a shield) and it looks like it was assayed in Sheffield from the Lion and Crown marks.
…and finally a nice little buckle, a “thing” and a modern 10p (1992) for scale
