This first item reminds me of a Seal rather than a ring but to be honest not sure, therefore hoping one of you will recognise it or put up some suggestions regarding research.
The tiny piece fell off during extraction but has traces of gilt. Second photo shows where it was attached.

Not sure if the 4 ball shaped lugs holding the oval bit are useful for dating diagnosis.

Last photo shows where it may have held something.
Actually dug more soil and crumbled the whole lot looking for a possible stone although my thinking is it could be a seal.
Second item found by my friend a round 20 mts away and is also Gilded, Buckle ?

There was a 3rd Gilded item but will share the full SP on a separate post.
Any info on above 2 items appreciated.
Cheers, :thumbsup:

I don't think you're too far off with thinking that might be a seal, Dave. Looks like it dangled off a chain, whatever it is :thumbsup:

First item is definitely 100% a seal fob frame. The second reminds me of something but I'll need to think. It has a strong feel of early medieval :Thinking:
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking

Thanks Cath and John. :thumbsup: :clapping:
Would you say the seal fob frame is Medieval or later, perhaps Georgian ?
Another item for the FLO.
Cheers, :thumbsup:
