I’m afraid I found no inspiration in my boxes of photos for this week’s meme, so have gone totally random (you’ll not be surprised to hear that one again – me? random? OK, yes).
My Dad was an avid coin collector (and vintage tractor collector, and stamp collector) but my sister recently found this item in a tin of Dad’s bits and bobs, and we haven’t the faintest idea what it is. Dad ploughed up all sorts of stuff and had a metal detector in the early 80′s when they became affordable, but he would have showed off any “treasure” (horseshoes, beer bottle tops, 20th Century coins) but none of us remember this item. It’s made of metal, and is not Masonic-related as far as Scottish Masonic experts know – could it be a coin of some sort? We reckon it’s not Zodiac-related either as there aren’t 12 sides. It looks like a special edition Jammy Dodger (a biscuit) without the jam in the middle.
Please hazard a guess on the hieroglyphics and post a comment – there will be a tempting wee prize for the best guess of a hand-made Scottish tea towel, not the latest 4×4 Chrysler, but it’s the taking part that counts, or so we were told. And we are, after all, Scottish. All input will be much appreciated, so guess away to your heart’s content.
Can’t wait to see what comes of this, because I haven’t the faintest idea what it might be, but there might be someone out there who knows, and we’re terribly excited to see if someone in internetland can identify it :-)
Join in with a Sepia Saturday of your own – it’s easy and fun :-)
SEPIA SATURDAY is a weekly meme which encourages bloggers to publish and share old images and photographs. All that is required is for contributors to post an old image (it doesn’t have to be in sepia) and provide a few words in explanation. If you could provide a link back to the Sepia Saturday Blog and visit as many of the other contributors as you can, it would also be appreciated. There is no weekly theme, as such, but some people like to use the archive image published with the weekly call as a kind of theme. There is no requirement to adopt such an approach : the choice of image is entirely up to you. Once you have published your Sepia Saturday post, add a link to that post to the Linky List published each week and leave a comment to let everyone know you are joining in.
