    Found in Canadian Hoggsback Falls, can anyone help identify what it might be? made of lead, round disk shape with patterns shaped onto the surface

      Not sure what it is, but wondering if it could be an item thrown into moving water for good luck, or prosperity.
      Very detailed

      At 1st glance, I thought celtic but after closer view, am not sure it's purely celtic. I'm no expert on this sort of thing but it has me intrigued. maybe viking/danish? Have you taken it to any experts or musee' people? You may have a very interesting piece concerning pre Columbian history of the America's.
      Keep us posted.

      The 8 point star and overall appearance looks Arabic and the symbols could be Arabic calligraphy.
      Found in a waterfall? Maybe it's a murder weapon?
