    When I flipped the plug over the only thing showing was the silver bowl. Click image for larger version

    If you look closely at the pistol you will see that it is actually a penknife. Click image for larger version

    The old pistol rounds were fun to find and so was the funny money.
    Both are play nickels. Click image for larger version

        There is no way in hell that I would want to get poked by one of those Johnny.
        And I don't want anyone else to either.

      Good work Bruce.

      I like how the 1917 fared in comparison to some of the other pennies.

      Thanks for sharing.

        That came from a different site Dave. The condition of it is lik4ely due to less fertilizer being used in that location.

      The elongated penny is neat, it was hard to deciper the language on it until I realized it was upside down. Always interesting to see your post Bruce.

        I didn't realize that it was upside down until I had taken the picture Johnny. By the time I realized my mistake I figured what the hell and left it as is.

        I have several of those type coins, seems like there is one of those machines at most parks and attractions. it is hard to resist them.

      Hey Bruce...........those `hallmarks` on your spoon denote who, when and where it was made. The `E P` at the top probably means elctro plate and the first two (reading sideways) are probably the makers mark ` BB`. then it looks like a crab maybe ( i know they used zodiac signs and stuff for the year it was made) and the one after that i dunno...maybe a stylised key or fish perhaps? So then you have to find out if they are English or Canadian and/or French Hallmarks(given where you are). Hope i`m not telling something you already know and good luck with the research

        Never worry about telling me something that I already know Lucas. I did know that already my friend but it is the communication here that is important to me. There has been a lot of work in categorizing and cataloging makers marks for all sorts of items including silverware, Unfortunately the best database for silver plate is not complete. http://www.925-1000.com/silverplate__menu.html

        ha nice one Bruce. I did have a quick look on the ol internet but soon became a bit lost in all the strange symbols. Tis why i left it to you mate. I know the main ones for England just in passing like the leopard for london and the anchor for Birmingham but thats about it lol
