    Thanks for your reply.

    That should be of a big heavy bicycle with huge bolts?

    It does look like an old motorcycle spanner.
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    It is a cycle spanner. I have one in the toolkit for my hobbyhorse. On a more serious note the older cycle tools didn't have as many sockets on them for the different sized nuts.

    The shard of pottery is Ming dynasty. And the two round things are probably coins looted from the recently discovered grave of Richard 111.

    yeah right
    for your information.
    shard of pottery is a part of an 18/19th century Köln pottery.
    the two other things are pistol musket balls. also a war relic, yet a bit older than WWII
