Started with a Minelab X-Terra 505 with stock coil or 18.75khz elliptical coil depending upon the site. Upgraded to Equinox 600 with stock coil, xl coil and sinper coil depending on circumstances.

Usually this water site is brass stuff, fishing lure bodies, sinkers and miscellaneous lead stuff. Every now and then some interesting lead item or a large cent will make an appearance. Anyway, this is a lead tag that would have adorned a bottle of Gin. Clearly not modern-day because it's lead. Anyone find one before? Posted rest of stuff front hunt here too. Think there's a lead two hole button in there too. No clue on brass screen thing. All resting on a lamp base with copper beaded edge.

A very interesting find. Congratulations.
It's definitely different. Found a lead tootsie toy limo from around 1911 and a pressed lead item with floral pattern in here as well. Only 2 largies over the last 9 months but hey it's scenic and cooler than open fields in the summer
