This is an unusual piece of WW2 trench art and was probably used as a desk paper weight.
The central piece is a ship anchor point. It shows some markings that I am not familiar with. The one visible appears to be a large "A" with smaller "DARS" underneath, but I cannot be certain.
The two attached .50 cal rounds will rotate and both bear WW2 dates-- "42" and "43".
Overall the item is in very good condition.
Any thoughts on the ships piece are appreciated.
