I like the silver looking thing on the left, the ring (obvs) abs the carved tooth at the top. A great range indeed. ☺️

Careful, she’ll have you leg when you’re not looking. 😂😂

Some very appropriate bits there, Clint :thumbsup:

The weather put paid to a fair few outings today, I'd imagine. Halloween itself's been cancelled too, by the looks of it.

Great finds and I should probably single out another find to gawp over but I’m so jealous of that decorated Brill ware that I can’t concentrate on the other things. Even the dish brooch, and that is gorgeous too :D
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking

Here's a question for you, if you had to give up all of those very nice finds except one, which one would you hang on to?

It's part of a finger guard from a 17th century short sword or rapier Phil,
like this one in Banbury museum.

Thanks mate
The bird/horse head terminal would be my keeper, it's recorded as possible late Saxon stirrup terminal but I'm not sure, the tendrils that curl around to form the eye's & nostrils have tiny snake eyes in them & the style looks the iron age stater type design?

It was a couple of years ago Cath, I was at Banbury museum on a Tuesday to see Anni the FLO & hand in some finds, she had someone with her so while waiting had a walk around & see the sword in a civil war display, took some photographs & had a rummage in the don't know tin when I got home, it was found at Banbury Road Bicester where all those new eco houses are now.

Very nice and appropriate assortment.
Id of the sword finger guard was brilliant, right time, right place, just like when we find something.
Cheers, :thumbsup:
Dave.
