Yesterday came home to find a bit of folded-up paper wedged in a crack in the fence wall bit (pavement goes right past it). Opened it up to find 2x2p coins inside unrecognisable writing - see pic!
What is this?

Do you have a dog? A lot of people who steal dogs leave signs/notes to eachother to alert which houses to target. This seems way more complex than the usual symbols but still.

Or aliens.

Mirror writing??

The picture looks like it's upside down.

Have you tried it against a mirror etc in case it's special spy code grin

I was thinking mirror writing too Regina

I'm pretty sure the dog stealing thing is an urban myth. This is too complicated anyway.

How odd

I dunno why but when I zoomed in on the photo it gave me weird chills lol how idea?!!

It's not mirror writing. I'll try and attach a better pic in a minute.
It gave me the creeps tbh

Argh so creepy! Have you heard about paying the ferryman...?!!

The 2p pieces signify a telephone box circa 1970s. Mobile phones can be used to detonate devices. Could this be the unravelling of a very low tech terrorist cell? No because phone boxes don't take 2ps anymore even if you could find onegrin.

It certainly is creepy

SalemSaberhagen Fri 10-Feb-17 23:32:54

That has given me the chills too!

PacificDogwod Fri 10-Feb-17 23:33:23

Yes, creepy, I agree.

It does not look like any language I recognise confused

Placemarking! :0

Foxysoxy01 Fri 10-Feb-17 23:33:52

I thought the two pence might be just to weight it down and stop it blowing away but they wouldn't stick it to the side with writing! I'm a bit dense blush

It's a bit creepy tbh

How was it put in your fence? Sort of hidden or in plain view easy to see? Do you think it was left specially for you to find?

GlitteryFluff Fri 10-Feb-17 23:35:23

That's so strange!

peaceloveandbiscuits Fri 10-Feb-17 23:35:24

I used to work in a shop and a woman used to come in occasionally and leave little "gifts" of dried flowers/leaves and dead insects confused some people are just odd and it doesn't mean anything to anyone else but them.

I thought Salem had posted because it was part of his world domination plans. I'm now disappointed - I was ready to sign up to support the feline charmer in his bid for world domination.

And back on topic, I am intrigued, OP.

glueandstick Fri 10-Feb-17 23:35:45

Could be txt spk. I'm old and uncool so don't know what it looks like 😂

NosyBarbara Fri 10-Feb-17 23:37:04

shock I have no idea placemarking

brooklyn66 Fri 10-Feb-17 23:37:47

Here's another pic. I put it back outside and it's still there a day later...
