Re: What does your hammered coin collection look like?

Very nice & organised Cath, well done there, I'm in the bits all over the place at the moment, Love the old cabinet, the spreadsheet list is something I must do when I move to the new office/study/shed & have had a sort out, but I'm useless with anything technical like that, hence why I have no avat...

Re: First dig, little pond, great fun

Great digging there Phil, nice finds mate, the earlier Eiffel tower had an embossing of the tower on, I think they were made in Maidstone by Foster Clarke or I might be confused with someone else? It was a lemon sherbet powder that you sprinkled & stirred into water to make it fizz, Them & that Wood...

Re: Saxons v Romans? A Roman bites the dust!

Of the coins I can get to at the moment, (there’s a few more somewhere)the holes are in the hanging positions so the heads of the Romans would be… 5 looking down & 2 upside down, The silver Philip II of Macedon Greek drachm 323-315bc is holed so he looks up at the wearer, Only one reverse (top right...

Re: Saxons v Romans? A Roman bites the dust!

Very interesting Charles, thank you for that,
I'm having a sort out of stuff found on a Saxon site & have found a few holed Roman coins,
Will have a closer look at how they would hang.

Re: Bits and pieces

The double loop piece looks similar to a Roman key handle,
Is that a back of a brooch left hand side?

Re: Old pinfire cartridge headstamps

Re: Thank you!!! ( and what's this??!!)

There's not much knowledge between these old ears I'm afraid,
I just went through some notes I made a few years ago, after getting one back I found from the FLO, as never seen or heard of them before, the design/hatching in the middle is there so you can grip it if your hands are wet or greasy.

Re: Thank you!!! ( and what's this??!!)

That’s a Havette or Harbick,
A double ended hook, a few of them would be used for securing/stretching skins/cloth to a board or horse etc during the process of scraping or shearing the nap,
Late Medieval/early post Medieval,
Well done on a lovely different find Alex.

A few hours out this afternoon after a car showroom visit for her 50th birthday & many thousands lighter, I needed to relax, so headed to a soft soil corner of a field near Bicester, a couple of belt/strap mounts & a nice condition beehive thimble was all that came up, at least the thimble wasn’t sq...

Lovely spur buckle
The chape loop would go in one of the holes in the spur arms,
Well found Batman.

Hi Stanslad, thanks for your reply, my resarch suggests late 17th early 18th century would you agree?
That date sounds about right to me mate.
