Went back to the stripped section of the field yesterday and was pleased to get a silver domed mount in the second hole. Thought it was the top of a silver thimble before I got it home but it has two deliberate holes in it so I suspect it was a bit of clothing bling.

Also found this medieval belt thingy that looks like a buckle (the correct term escapes me right now) in lovely condition. And a tudor clothes hook.

Mystery items include this crescent shaped thin copper thing. And two coins - one copper and probably a rose farthing whilst the other is bronze, quite thick and feels like a Roman coin. Might go back for another sweep but I’ve done the area pretty thoroughly now, except for one bit which has water pooled in it - a fewmore days and it should be dry enough :D

Worth going out for those, Cath.
If it is a Roman coin, the neck of the subject looks very slender.
Interesting piece of Silver, see what age that gets id`d to.
Well; found, :thumbsup:

Thanks Dave :thumbsup:

Just realised I have another one I found a year or so ago which I put in the scrap silver tin thinking it was a thimble top too :oops:

Seeing the FLO tomorrow so we’ll see what he says :thumbsup:

Interesting little thing. Looks like one side was extended out - maybe a hinged lid or summink. Always nice to find something of interest in the scrap pile :thumbsup:

Believe the silver things are button tops - likely to be pre 1700 so guess what… yup two more treasure items to add to the other 5 :thumbdown:

Not a bad thing to moan about Cath. I never found 1 never mind 5.
The best I got was a fairly unique report, for the area, about my Neolithic axe head. Good job they did a printed version ‘cause I’ve never managed to find it in their records :thumbdown:

I know a fantastic area for history that could produce anything. History from Late Stone Age through to WW11. Guess what ? It’s Military ground and a definite no no.

Lucky you for having permission on some good ground. Well found :thumbsup:
