Evening all,

I found these on a sandy field in Norfolk a couple of days ago; I got really excited with the first one (The one on the left) as it just felt a bit Celtic to me… Then I found the other two in very quick succession which look rather more modern and my excitement waned fairly quickly as you don't tend to find Celtic – Romano/British finds quite so freely - well not in my book anyway!

They seem to be copper alloy and are "browner" in real life, quite thick and look to be broken... pretty much the same on both sides btw.

The field has been drilled this year but I know that in the past it it it has had pigs on it - these aren't to do with pigs are they!? Surely not, but as a worst case scenario I can picture them being of porcine use...

Any help with the ID would be much appreciated to put my mind at rest!
Hope all well,
Alexander
