Old news, but amazing.  As a child, Christopher Becker of Queensland, Australia found this interesting piece of brass in a bag of pipe fittings in a shed on his father’s farm.  He’d been hanging onto it for 36 years before learning it was a horary quadrant dating back to 1396.  The story is here, and the auction listing has more information.

The numbers stamped into the quadrant are part of the reason I find this interesting.  4, 5, and 7 look very strange.  Arabic numerals were just starting to be used in Europe at this point, and their shapes were not yet standardized.
