Good Morning All,
Hope all well esp. under the horrible ground conditions I expect we are all experiencing at the moment!
A couple of bits for ID please ; a heavily clipped and damage Hammered - guessing an Edward, a nice fibula - pity about the condition (found in an area of about 2 acres so heavily detected in the past, as it is a well known Roman hotspot, that there are next to no signals , not even cartridge caps or primers, so this was a real bonus). And I am not sure at all what the last one is... it seems to be joined with a ferrous element ...
Anyway any help much appreciated as always!
All the Best
Alexander

Yep, Bury penny. :thumbsup: The spacing of the letters suggest EDWAR R - Edward II.

Blimey, Alexander, yet more??? Pack it in! ;)

Lovely Hod Hill fibula and looking at the iron encrustation on item 3 might suggest it was mounted vertically, so Tony's pendant idea makes sense :thumbsup:

Well done. Again :thumbsup:
