I’m rubbish at IDing these but I think it’s a Polden Hill type. Best wait till an expert comes along though!

Whatever the ID I think it is a stunning example :Party:

Nice complete brooch with pin, rare to see a complete one :thumbsup: :thumbsup:
At work so won’t stick my neck out until I have my Richard Hattatt book in front of me for a definitive ID
someone will be along soon with an ID soon I’m sure

Well found and saved

I'd guess 1st century. It should look great after a good clean up, but I wouldn't use any water on it. :thumbsup:

Now, that's a remarkably good find. Nicely done :thumbsup:

I'd agree with Polden Hill variety, which the PAS dates between 80-120.

sorry to be a stickler ( and I know I'm not the best!!!!) but some sort of scale would be really nice to have here... you can just about get away with it if it is something common, like a victorian penny, but would love to know how big this is....

I have to go with Polden Hill from what I can see but have a slight reservation towards a variant of Polden hill
