    I had this guy cross my desk this week. I am not finding anything about this piece. It appears to be silver from my test and it is 59.2 mm in diameter.

    Thoughts?

    Some sort of modern piece , can't see any silver hallmark ??
    The gates of hell were opened and we accepted the invitation to enter" 26/880 Lance Sgt, Edward Dyke. 26th Bn Northumberland Fusiliers , ( 3rd Tyneside Irish )

    1st July 1916

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    I think it's junk. Hans-Joachim Marseille was known as the 'Star of Africa' not 'Star of the South', that's Bayern Munich F.C. (For American viewers that's a 'Soccerball' team.)
    'I do not think we can hope for any better thing now.
    We shall stick it out to the end, but we are getting weaker of course, and the end cannot be far.
    It seems a pity, but I do not think I can write more. R. SCOTT.
    Last Entry - For God's sake look after our people.'
