    Looks like a guy carrying an exploding cannon ball to me. The real mystery is how come your tally for the amount of posts you have made so far hasn't changed from the same number of posts you have made since your famous, " exploding Shot Puts?"...........NGE

    I think Tony nailed it. The person is using a long walking stick, like he's travelling. Behind him appears to be the Christian fish symbol. And the coin is drilled like somebody wore it on a string.

    Wow, funny how we all see something different. I see a man with a beard and curly hair, his body 3/4 of the way facing you, head turned to the right, walking to the right, with a spear in his right hand and a large shield (possible fish effigy) in his right hand, and a sword belt with sword extending backward.

    Everyone does see something different, it's like looking at a cloud and seeing things. It changes everytime you look at it I saw a man that seemed to be heading to the left with a staff, or a pole with the flag waving towards the right.

    Be CAREFUL cleaning it!!! It looks from the metal around the punched hole that it has a very thin brass plating.

    There is lots of letters, there could be antlers and it looks like a date on the back.
