    Lead Elephant Coins and Lead Bull Squares

    Found these today in the Mississippi River in Minneapolis, MN. They are made of lead. I can bend them with my hands with a bit of force. Found 4 round elephant coins, about the size of a Morgan Silver dollar, and 3 square bull pieces, all in a 10 sq foot area of the Mississippi River in 4 to 5 ft of water (river very low this year). Reverse side appears to be foreign writing. Any ideas?

    Probably tossed in the water. An Indian ritual most likely.

    Re: Lead Elephant Coins and Lead Bull Squares

    I saw this a few summers ago in St. Louis MO.
    There was a whole family beside the river and two were throwing these type coins in and a few other items.
    Didn't ask anything as you could tell they were trying to keep it private .

    Isn't "oxen" the proper term for more than one ox? Or would you say "two oxes"? Maybe I'm thinking of "Foxen" like in more than one fox? Probably not. M nty

    Re: Lead Elephant Coins and Lead Bull Squares

    oxen is the term normally used for more than one animal * for light loads one animal (ox) can be used (but normally speaking they are often "yoked" together and used in a set of two team (oxen) - for very heavy loads or over rough ground multiple teams of two (say 8 or 9 sets of oxen ) might be hitched together ) --oxen are normally bullocks over 4 years of age ( normally castrated ) and used a draft animals for carting goods and for plowing feilds , they are sometimes ridden as welll much like a horse is.

    There are only a few words where the plural ends in EN. oxEN is one and childrEN is another. FoxEN is not a word Monty LOL. The plural of fox is fox.

    The writing is Sanskrit. You have the writing upside down.
    Those are Hindu mantra's on the tokens.

    Post your pictures for the record, with where you found it, because it will all help to raise interest and get it solved.
