"Yes Tom, I am sort of familiar with such coins, having just sold 55 of them at auction in CA.   More of this estate stuff I am liquidating.   But you do raise a point, gold .. hmmm ..  well I think not … bu then .. hmmm. Hey…"

"The use of sesquipedalian words is appreciated by those who can understand them. I found a belly dancer's bracelet; was brass and had 1 round yellow metal dingle-dangle on it.  Bunch of funny designs, 4 little sticks design. Discovered it…"

"Oh, I meant to add.   At the clasp, it the far end of the hinged too where it is deteriorated, along the periphery of these circumferential letterings or whatever, I can almost convince myself there is a Arabic date which is now quite messed…"

"Hi Tom, yes, I understand Roman Numerals.  Learned to manipulate them many years ago.    And I shall try to extract the lettering.   Maybe I should say, the apparent Roman numerals around the circumference don’t make a lot…"

"Zeke, are the letters cut or molded into the black  part?  If yes, use a pinch or two of flour and the letters will stand out quite well. Flour washes off with plain water. As for the X's and I's, those are Roman numerals. …"

"Zeke, if you'll  open the link I sent to you and look at other sun dials you will see that the numbers for time are in the same area as yours.  They represent shadows cast by the sun, not hours around a clock face. Since the sun casts…"

"Tom, Molly.  Thanks for your efforts to help out!  Now, I have handled a ton of brass over the years and I am fairly certain it is not brass.  Feels and looks like “pot metal”!   Hate that description but there it is!…"

Molly replied to Zeke's discussion Antique Pewter Snuff Box in the group Whadja Find Today
"Funny that you should say that, because I found some that looked very similar to Zeke's, but they all had compasses within.  I could not say anything about the metal because I could not really tell...that is why I looked for a pewter item…"

tomsantiquesetcetera replied to Zeke's discussion Antique Pewter Snuff Box in the group Whadja Find Today
"This has been re-purposed, it appears, into a snuff box but  originally it contained a compass.  A sundial is worthless without a compass to determine North. I also do not believe it's "pewter", that is much too soft a metal…"

Molly replied to Zeke's discussion Antique Pewter Snuff Box in the group Whadja Find Today

Antique Pewter Snuff Box

i have come by this not to perfect pewter snuff box.   The wee label inside indicated it may have had a sun dial of some sort standing on it at a time.   Very rough shape I know, but I am having trouble deciding just what Age it might be.   Circa ???No marks on reverse.   Thank you for any insights.…See More

Zeke replied to Heidi Kessler's discussion This Little Piggy Went to Market...? in the group Whadja Find Today
"I did get curious and spent some time looking for something similar and simply gave up.  The rings clearly indicate they “hung” on something.   Surely not earrings are they!     As I could not figure out what indeed…"
