Hi again,

The person auctioning the item is most probably right. The coins were in a soldiers pocket and saved his life when hit by a bullet and then kept as a prize possession for the rest of his days. Unless someone out there knows different ........

It seems such a shame that the story behind this item has been lost over the years.

Funny item. The date engraving doesn't look "right" to me. The Edward VII penny in the centre looks very worn for a coin that would only have been between 6 and 14 years old in 1916. The ebay seller has also received 50+ positive feedback scores in the last month (of a total of 60 odd). What a busy chap.

Yes , 15.09.16 does have those tank connections but says to me " 1st July 1916 isn't really on, let's think of another interesting date that the afficianados will know".
