Good afternoon to all, found this a couple of days ago on disced stubble a good 7" deep with my X-Terra 705 with Nel Tornado 7.5Khz coil. It has a copper alloy suspension loop with the main part being of a different metal but not silver judging by the tin foil test. My own research suggests maybe late 17th early 18th with similar ish on the PAS website but nothing like i have seen before. Your thoughts would be appreciated, thank you.

Lovely spur buckle
The chape loop would go in one of the holes in the spur arms,
Well found Batman.

Hi Stanslad, thanks for your reply, my resarch suggests late 17th early 18th century would you agree?
