Couple of finds by my detecting friend this week.
Firstly an item with some decent quality Gilding, did think maybe off a spur but flat on the back and no trace of gilding there.

Part of a Roman ? Brooch up next, grots have come up from this field.

Definite Roman brooch and loving that buckle :thumbsup:

The first item puts me in mind of part of a flintlock firing mechanism but that's unlikely.

Great finds. I found a rowel spur fragment today too - funny how these things are like buses!
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking
