Question Of cannons and girl guides.

This particular farm allows the local village girl guides to run a small summer camp down by the fresh water lakes on a yearly basis.

In the past I have found a lot of modern coins so I tend to only go once in the winter time down to camping field although I do search other fields on the farm.

These finds are from last week. (minus the modern coins)

The toy cannon and silver coin is not from the camping field.

Thanks for looking....Doug.

Toy cannon Circa 1600-1800.


Silver ring.
















Very worn hammered silver coin.

Good morning USA.

Yes it is a military button, General Service Circa WW1, possible epaulette or breast pocket looking at the size of it?

Better example below.
