Bet that made you look twice! :lol:

My son found this piece of "old slag" by the river yesterday - with a curious smooth hole worn through it. Thought it lent itself to a rather neat pen holder (and paperweight!)

It has to be about 300 years old, from when the forges were active here. Just need a rich American to want to pay zillions for it!! :-j

I was tempted to put it up for auction, just for a laugh. But as it's unique, I'm beginning to get attached to it!

Pen not included! 8-)
