Hiya....nice find i believe it to be a victorian pewter whistle Cool

There are several similar examples on the UKDFD Site they cover a fairly wide range

and are described as 18th to 19th century...regards PaulB. Cool

Are all these recent finds from the same site Ace? As its beginning to look a good place. If it form the same location once you clear the scrubbish out of the ground - you will see the quality of finds improve mate.

Love the whistle.

Thanks guys,

 I thought it was pewter as well Paul m8, and cheers Karl, great link that m8.

Doing well now Alan, really loving it butty  Smiley

Neil, yes fella, their all from the same site as the last couple of posts, one side of the field seems to be throwing up Victorian stuff, the middle of the field has brought up lots of Georgian coins and of course over the other side it threw up my Hammie ( Lizzy I  Half Groat ), can't wait for some nice weather to have a good search now guys, will keep you informed of the finds.
