Found by Jim Hammond: Various change and a key. Also, a silver-plated tablespoon from the “1847 Rogers Bros Co.” The pattern is “Tipped”, which dates it between 1879-1898.

Found by Susannah: “This is a Czech reliquary medal. The top hinges back to hold a small piece of cloth that had been touched to a religious object, like saints’ bones or holy oil. The picture is of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. The back of the medal says “Czeche Slvku”, meaning “Czecho-Slovak”, the name in 1918 of the first creation of the two countries into one. In 1938 they became Czechoslavakia. The medal would therefore date between 1918-1938.”    Found with an XP Deus at 3 inches.
