    Thought id share with you a few finds from the perimeter of an airfield a mere stones throw from where i live.as well as a few old bottles that scrubbed up nicely just wondering about that, what appears to be a box lid,still covered with green paint.Interesting as iv found larger ones on other sites?

    Nice finds. Not sure what the lid thingy is I'm afraid. The 20mm looks to be in great condition
