Todays Finds ... Quiz

Post by Saffron » Wed Jul 10, 2019 8:02 pm

I went on a small dig today.

Good company and good detecting conditons on recently cut pasture (the baled haylage still in the field), even mainly easy digging.

If being nitpicking it could have been a bit cooler, but better than cold and heavy rain (come on I am British and we always moan about the weather!).

A Roman silver denarius was found and silver love token.

But I thought I would be different and see if you could work out what I foud =)) =))

Three items all related. The connection being H5133 :-/

All found with the Nox, Field 1, between 6 and 10 inches deep.

Let me explain- The King James Bible Hebrew dictionary shows that item H5133 translates to mean Feathers hence my guess of bird rings!

BA,
no its not "dudespeak", which if your fluent in means your younger than myself.

There is no alphabetical conversion, it is Alphabetic "H" then numeric "5133" and there is no kind of code involved.

No I am not dyslexic .... although with some of my typing even I wonder!.

"Brake caliper locating guide pins?" ???? ...... oh you naughty man you used Mr Google to get that!!! I doubt if he will help in this case.


Ladybird,
to my knowledge its not in a book.


Spearhead,
good thinking, but wrong. (typed before I saw your reason for this ... but not bird or feather related)
IF it was a bird it would be a VERY large one.

Machinist,
I passed one of those on the way to the dig so know that they would not find in my finds bag :))


So we have established that the connection is
1) Not some secret kind of code.
2) Not readily found by use of Mr Google or in a book.
3) Larger than a bird and smaller than a lorry.

IF ONLY !!!.


Sadly nothing any where near that good.

Trust me IF I had found 3 Henry 5th Groats I would be screaming in delight not making a quiz out of it.

100 views so a bit more information.

All 3 items were VERY similar, I am aware of 3 others all with the same H5133

In my case -
H5133 .... E36
H5133 .... 474
H5133 .... 515

Good thinking the way firearms and military stuff are always number.

But no, not firearms nor military related.

Zyrbalax,
very well done you are spot on.

You even win a prize .... a years FREE subscription to MDF, obviously subject to MRIX approval.


Sorry folks, it was "one of those days" and my finds were limited so I thought I would see who knew what some of the scrap that they found was.

Zyrbalax was on the mark when he said "Animal / farm holding number tags". The dig was on a dairy farm and they were all ear tags from the cattle.

I am sure that most of us have found them at some time, if like these they gave a fantastic high number screaming "dig me" to our disappointment.

Here is a bit of background.
If you keep cattle, (or bison or buffalo), you need to get a herd mark. In this case the H5133.

A herd mark is a unique identifier for a herd of animals. It is issued by the Animal and Plant Health Agency (APHA). In England and Wales it is possible for a holding to have more than 1 herd mark (for example if you run your beef and dairy herds separately).

All cattle have to be individually identified and registered.
As part of this they all have to have ear tags. I think that now these are mainly plastic. However they used to be metal with a disc that went the one side of the ear and a bar that went the other, and were then attached to the ear.
The bar part contained the herd number (H5133 in this case), so all animals in the same herd would have this number.
The disc side had a unique number (in this case E76, 474, 515) which identified the individual cow.

As a result of this all cattle can be tracked from birth through any sales right up to slaughter.

So if you find one of these the farmer could tell you which cow it belonged to and when it was born and it parents and history.

BUT if you find one I suggest that if you want to retain the permission you do not say to the farmer "Well what is the point of these" !!!, because the paper work involved with cattle is significant. But should there be a health or animal welfare issue they are important.


Evan

Sorry Oxgirl, you were correct but too late.
