Morning Ron. Thatís a bit different, very nice. Is it a weight or is it a bell ?
It seems to have the same suspension as a Crotal bell.
But of course, if itís solid it would be a weight.
Nice to see you & Tom got out together after all this wasted time. Do still take care though.

I was going to say this looked like 1500-1700s date to me. But upon research I see this is most likely a Roman Acorn Steelyard weight! Both these examples pictured were found in Europe, Cyprus and Naples, so yours might be a well traveled example. Very nice find! Maybe the rest of the parts are still out there! Something worth recording on PAS!
