Lid (12A02)

This hinged lid was found east of Drakes Island in March 2012. The lid is circular, made from 0.8mm thick copper alloy sheet with round formed edges. The lid is dented and abraded and has a section missing on one side. The upper part of the hinge is intact and held in place with copper rivets. A label is still attached to the middle of the lid which says 'No 28 CAPSTAN FLAT'.

This lid has been tentatively identified as having come from a lantern.
