Good Morning everyone!
I went out for a short hunt yesterday and found these 3 pieces.
I'm not sure if the collar disc is WW1 or WW2 and what the I and M stand for.
It rang up 29 to 30 on the Equinox and thought it was going to be a silver lol.
The other 2 objects I have no idea what they are.
Thanks so much!
