Was out and at it for 9 and a half hours non stop today apart from a very occasional slurp of coffee and gobbling a pasty or two down.
Tried 5 fields hoping to find an area to concentrate on but gridded a couple of areas and mostly roamed about!
Quite a mix up of finds including a Bristol farthing 17c trade token,lead bag seal, some sort of badge that I need to clean up more to read , lead weight with a symbol scratched on and a few coins including one well worn Roman.
Any ideas on buckle ages ? At least two look medieval to me. The one with the triangular plate has traces of decoration and gilding on the plate. The circular one has decoration on both buckle and plate.the small D shaped one has an unusually long pin. I assume the other piece on the same pic is a Tudor clothing fastener?
Right at the end of the day ,just when I was wondering if the deus was allergic to silver a hammy pops up. Looks to be an Eddie Canterbury mint but difficult to tell as it’s pretty worn.
Sorry about quality of pics, sun was on the way down when I got back

The buckles are a mix of medieval and post med.

The middle one is an annular buckle with a central bar 1350-1650

The one on the left and right are from 1250-1500

Nice collection of buckles!
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking

Thanks for that Cath, is the other piece a Tudor hooked tag?

Looking at the finds.org website, the d shaped one with the long pin could be Saxon ?
. A long pin that drapes over the edge of the frame seems to be a feature of those

I hadn’t taken much notice of the pin :oops: You are right though, it is Saxon :Party: . Some examples can be found here

Amazing, didn’t really expect it to be that old. Came from a different field to last weeks strap end. Here’s the pic and info I was looking at.
