    Good evening
    I am not sure but I think these are Irish ? wts used to measure against gold,silver or coins. I have heard that they were used in trade to assure proper weight of coins but would be grateful if someone could steer me in the right direction to find out more.
    They were discovered under the floor boards of a fallen in log cabin on the edge of Georgian Bay.
    They were inside the deerskin bag in the pictures.
    Found about 40 years ago
    Any help would be appreciated. IMG_1556.JPG IMG_1557.JPG IMG_1558.JPG IMG_1559.JPG IMG_1562.JPG IMG_1563.JPG IMG_1564.JPG

    They are weights of some sort from Ireland.
    EDIT: @willieboyd2 beat me to it!

    Nice weights. Pretty cool to find a multi-coin collection already assembled.

    The bag is perhaps almost my favorite part!
