Happy Christmas All!
Crikey its cold ( and wet!) out - found these earlier.... not a bad rose farthing... but need a bit of help on the other two...one a mount I would have thought, not sure on the other with the loop which is in really nice condition too.
Any knowledge much appreciated!
All the B

Belt hanger / sword hanger I believe. Or for hanging anything off a belt such as a purse

Couple of nice finds, Alex.
Have found a hooked one before 1600/1700.
Any trace of Gilt on the band just above the hook, had one speck on mine.
Cheers, :thumbsup:
Dave.

Just watched your video and now subscribed.

Small button is Tudor and the cartridge case is a 'pin-fire' type.


"A pinfire cartridge is an obsolete type of metallic firearm cartridge in which the priming compound is ignited by striking a small pin which protrudes radially from just above the base of the cartridge. Invented by Frenchman Casimir Lefaucheux in the 1830s but not patented until 1835, it was one of the earliest practical designs of a metallic cartridge. Its history is closely associated with the development of the breechloader which replaced muzzle-loading weapons".
