"WHAT THE HECK IS THIS THING?"


Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone,

I forgot to mention I found this strange item at Moore Creek this year. The item would not discriminate out so I continued to dig. When I first got a glimpse of the item I thought it was a gold coin! :blink: However, it's not a coin, but looks like some type of gold plated lid from something. I have no clue what the heck it is, so was hoping for some help on identification.

I believe it says "Hiran Walker & Sons, Limited - Made in England.

I heard the Bloody English liked to gold plate nice things, but maybe mines just a piece of junk.

Thanks for the help in advance,

Rob Allison

Hello All,

Well I guess I should have done an Internet search first! :rolleyes:

The name is actually, "Hiram Walker & Sons Limited."

Here is some interesting information on the maker. :D

Hiram Walker and Sons

I guess it was a liquor lid or top, which could have been Whiskey or Rum.

Still reading more about the stuff as I type this.
