Can anyone help identify the ring in the centre of this picture please? It is aluminium and looks look an oversized pigeons leg ring. Would have had to be a big bird though ( pause for funny comments...), It has BRC 69D 10699 around it. Possibly for a bird of prey?  Huh

Wow Dodger that's a good days finds. Pigion rings do seen a bit on the big side for little legs. They're not close fitting so I think that's prob. what it is.

Well done that man.

Thanks for the comments folks. Just had a reply from another forum which identifies as a ring from a project in Russia, BRC, for tagging barnacle geese. I have registered it on a site for reporting such rings. Amazing to think this little find has come that distance!  Grin

Sorry, but no. Only silver there are 1940's half crown and threepence. Oldest coin is a very poor condition bawbee (Scottish copper c1690). Few Georgian grots including a cartwheel. First time out on a new farm which has cut for silage. No history that i know off, but an encouraging first search.
