Monday we made our 3rd trip to this field.
Weather was dry and the sun came out. Birds of prey were making use of the thermals, saw Red Kites and Buzzards.
My friend had a Medieval ring buckle, plenty of buttons and twice the amount of finds i managed.

2nd photo is my haul but i did manage the postal bag lead seal, which was a massive bonus.
Also found this rather ornate lid, which i assume is off an early 20th C perfume bottle,

Diameter of 39mm and has a good weight to it, may have been Silver plated at one stage as still showing some specs.
Thanks for looking, :thumbsup:

Was there civil war action in that area? See there’s a musket ball and a powder cap in the first photo :thumbsup:

Looks like an interesting field. Where there’s lead there’s silver - if you don’t end up going mad finding all the lead first though :lol:

I reckon your lid is off an inkwell. :)

Is this piece a belt hanger?

It's funny that you should pick that one out as I did too as it seems quite familiar. :thumbsup:

No known civil war action in the area, Cath. My friend did find an Edward 3rd Half Groat1351/2 on first visit, also a folded blank Silver coin on 2nd visit.

Thanks for suggestion, Steve and Easy. Had this piece as part of cutlery handle, so may have to do some investigation.
Cheers, :thumbsup:
