Hi Everyone,
I found these two on a rather unpromising little patch so it has got me blood up a bit - the one on the right is a fibula I'm sure though tiny.... its about 26mm wide.. its the one on the left... its probably just a modern lid of sorts and I can't see any signs of a "catch" on the reverse but my glass-half-full side is hoping it may have existed on the bits which are no longer there... has anyone seen anything similar?
Hope all well and any help much appreciated.
All the B,
Alexander

On the right is a Colchester 1 piece brooch not sure about the other bit, looks like lead alloy ?

The one on the left looks to be made of lead/alloy.

The left hand item, looks like a piece from this weeks River Hunters.
Similar circular design and was described as a lead token.
Cheers :thumbsup: ,
Dave.
