Why not just email them for an opinion? If you're lucky they might even reply, mine don't!

Definitely worth showing the FLO, Pete, and it'll be interesting to hear what they think. Difficult to tell from an image but that patina looks like it's been well earned after a long time in the soil.

Who's your FLO?
By comparison,
I emailed mine on Saturday 20th Feb at 16.11 saying the hub-brain thought an item was a Roman key bow. He confirmed it at 19.04 and asked me to record it.
I emailed with more pictures and details on March 1st @12.22. I got a return email at 13.55 including the PAS link to the item.
Can't complain at the service :thumbsup:

When we're talking about Saxon, is that different to Anglo Saxon? Sorry for being obtuse! lol

The reason I ask is that Offa's Dyke was supposedly built by the Anglo Saxon King Offa, and denoted the border between the kingdom of Mercia and the Welsh kingdom of Powys...

I`m not 100% sure Pete, to be honest. I was thinking more in the lines of All out Saxon myself rather than Anglo Saxon when I said that .
If you look at this >>> https://www.quora.com/What-is-the-main- ... glo-saxons ,it says pretty much what I suggested that the Saxons stayed in other what we know as "English" areas predominately, and left Wales & Scotland alone to the "proper" Celts who were probably too ferocious for their liking with their scary blue Woad body markings and guerrilla battle tactics. But lets hope that if you show it to an FLO they can bring more Ideas as to its origin. :thumbsup: Offa Probably built the dyke to keep the Welsh from coming over into at the time England because I think in those days the boarder was defined by the Dyke. Its all very muddled as to which part of this area was actually in ,in those days ,because if you look at the said Dyke`s path ,a big chunk of where we are was under English possession then. So who knows for sure ?

I had a reply from my FLO this morning, and I think she is as puzeled by the object as the rest of us..She seems to be leaning towards winder but notes the appearance of age and wear around the open work...She has not discounted harness pendants but notes it's not quite right in that it does not appear to be robust enough...

She does seem keen to see it in person, but it looks like that will be several weeks away at present...

I think the only thing which would help in the mean time is if somebody finds something similar already recorded....

I will update if I get eventually get a determination....

Is it made of lead/alloy or copper/alloy?

It appears to be a copper alloy as far as I can tell; definitely not lead or pewter like anyway....
