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?

Goodness! You mean a MN poster or a Reddit one?

Any more news on the Mongolian lead?

KarmaNoMore Wed 15-Feb-17 22:54:58

Mongolian lead reported back, no match.

Not any version of Tamil or Telugu

Or Malayalam or Kannada

Katie Melua is Georgian. You should ask her. She seems like a nice girl,I'm sure she would help out. Extremely creepy that someone else had a similar note on your street. What did they make of it?

I'm so happy I found this thread again!

So it's looking like it's not a known language, I bet it's someone just fucking around.

Send a pic to SOAS? I bet someone there would know.

MarilynWhirlwindRocks Thu 16-Feb-17 06:31:51

ToDuk,

That's a great idea, actually...SOAS could discount swathes for you, OP.

Ooh, this mystery has so many possible scenarios!

Shameless placemark grin although allowed because I read the whole thread

AristotlesTrousers Thu 16-Feb-17 08:08:33

Ooh, that's exciting OP! This fills me with hope that you might solve the mystery.

Send a pic to SOAS? I bet someone there would know.

Oh yes yes do that, I bet they won't rest until they've got to the bottom of it!

Placemarking. This is fascinating!

menditdearhenry Thu 16-Feb-17 13:00:16

This is so intriguing! I hope you get to the bottom of it, OP.

If it is something that seems to be happening locally, is there a local forum or FB page where you could ask?

brooklyn - amazing to find a MN on your doorstep, hope the two of you can get your heads together on this one.

Placemarking

FromBigCityToTinyVillage Thu 16-Feb-17 16:00:50

Placemarking.. so hoping someone can solve the mystery !

OP, given that you and a nearby neighbour have had these - would it be worth taking these to the local newspaper? Not quite a DailyFail sadface story, but presumably someone local would recognise it?

GirlWithTheYellowHat Thu 16-Feb-17 16:55:01

This is sooo strange!

I thought Grorgian too i see documents frim all over with work. Or it coukd be made up.

Could you try acessing a translation service yiurself? Theres one at the town hall in the town i work in

Poppiesway1 Fri 17-Feb-17 21:52:39

I haven't read whole thread (14pages!)
Have you read it in a mirror ? There's a google translate app.. hold it over and see if it can read it..
or tweet it? See if anyone can read it that way?
