I found this today while out on a dig in Staffs....I am not sure what to make of it is whether it's scrap or a possible bracelet? There are the remains of faint remains of a lines running around it which are just visible...

I am not sure what the metal is and it came up as a rather horrible signal bouncing from 16 to 24 in Field 1 on the Nox...it appears to be solid/cast in construction..

Any and all opinions would be much appreciated...

I've seen summat like that before, but cant for the life of me remember what it was used for
Hopefully someone intelligent will be along to give the answer

Seems to be slim pickings at this stage of the year for everyone, but kudos for getting yourself out there :thumbsup:

Thanks Tony, I was sort of expecting that sort of verdict, but I thought I had better check...

It was on one of the internet digs....there was certainly plenty of land to go at and the grass had been freshly cut to over much of it too.

Considering 40 or 50 people were out, not a huge amount came off...there was a couple of hammered, and a handful of Victorian silver's, of which one was a very nice half guinea found by my mate...I found a couple of thimbles, one stuck inside the other, plus the rein guide, but it was still nice to get out on different ground, even if the sun was a bit brutal!
