Ohhhhh nice :Star: Brooch or maybe a buckle? Either way I can’t help you with dating but I’m interested in knowing too!
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking

From the lion passant guardant mark I think that dates it pre 1862 or even pre 1822 dependant on where it was assayed. I'd guess Georgian. Always nice to find a bit of silver. :thumbsup:
