    Anyone ID this

    Hi I found a small piece of metal sticking up from the ground, turned out to be nearly 4' long, does anyone have a clue what it could be from?

    Hi Guys
    That's a pretty positive ID there PB1507.
    Am much surprised that someone would know, and thank-you as I had no idea what it was.
    I don't think that I will be out digging for the rest of it any time soon.

    58 years ago, when I was13, I went discing after school, with our E1A Fordson Major, for a few evenings to prepare the seedbed for some spring barley. We had 4 of the transport wheels for the discs, although I never saw them used as the farm is in a ring fence.
