Evening all, I had a few hours to kill tonight on some considerably softer pasture than the previous couple of weeks!

Any idea on the two crude bits? They're both copper I believe. Also a date and use of the hinge please.

Many thanks :)

Those copper rivets are nice finds. I suspect the hinge is a book fitting :Thinking:

I did think a book hinge but I couldn't find an exact match, it does seem to clamp as well as hinge.
