Here's a few bits I hadn't got around to posting until now.

First is a George the 3rd that looked weird, and I think it might be one of these, but the other side is completely blank. https://coinscatalog.net/ireland/coin-1 ... rd-coinage

Can't read all of it but looks to say Georgivs Dei Gratia Rex, so the iii is missing.

Next is a fragment of what I'm pretty sure is bronze and has a pattern and traces of gilding, wondering if it could be a disc brooch or if it's just a random bit of furniture fitting, unfortunately broke it when I was digging it out but looks like it got folded by the plough and was hanging by a thread. Very green patina that hasn't come out well in the photo and looks like bronze rather than brass where it is broken.

Last is a little broken strap end, anyone have an idea of the age, very crude and simple decoration so wondering if it's early or cheap!

The 'disc brooch' is maybe a watch face?

Cool, that's what I thought, I just found it on a different site.

I was scratching my head for ages with that one until I remembered the Irish ones were different.

Just realised I was two Georges out though!

Certainly could be, and the hole in the centre would fit that, but it feels a bit thick for that, and the pattern looks a bit crude.

Just has the look of something with a bit more age, but that does fool me sometimes.
