    Smile Few Bits And Pieces Of Oldness

    Today I went out on a spot I usually go to to metal detect. It's a bit difficult to get to the spot by boat and some walking. The spot is an early 1900's hunting spot and an abandoned field.
    So first of by some Stone Walls I found my first ever Lead Back Seal: Click image for larger version.

    Is the 1916 made of iron or steel or something?

    No, it's bronze. Don't know for sure why it has a such low signal. It's a tiny coin, half as small as a penny.

    Oh, I see I got them mixed up. I thought the 1916 was the larger one. I guess back around World War I, they changed up the metal used in a lot of the coins over there for the war effort. If I remember correctly, in the last couple years of the war, Sweden produced iron or steel coinage, instead of bronze. Cool stuff, by the way.
