    Lead charm?

    I believe this item is made of lead and it was found while metal detecting on the Florida East Coast. Can anyone identify what is on it and what it represents? It weights 2.21 grams. I think I see a building with tall thin trees on each side.

    Thanks

    Could it be pewter, just thinking ,that little hanging tab might be very fragile if it was lead. interesting piece.

    I can't say for sure if it's lead, but I believe it's meant to mimic a coin for a charm bracelet. Was probably gold plated at one time

    Would suspect it to be pewter because if it was lead it would have some weight to it. Lead wouldn't keep a stamping very long since it's so soft

    I don't detect for the stuff I find, I detect for the stuff I haven't found.

    If I didn't find it I hope you did.

    Cool Find!! It sure does look like a building with trees to the side. The arched door looks somewhat temple or church like.
