Good evening all.
Hope everyone is well.
Well, after waiting patiently for a good few months, the farmer has finally shifted the mountains a dung from what was, until summer, a pig field. The only problem is that he's spread it all on another field that I like going on!
Oh well, beggars can't be choosers I guess... :)
Anyway, I spent a few hours on said ex-pig field at the weekend and found these items.
The jeton is a new one for me, as I have only found the Rose Orb variety previously.
The escutcheon (?) has a dog-like appearance to me.
The buckle is unlike any I have found before. I wonder if it is spur related?
As for the other item - well I have no idea. Any suggestions gratefully received!
My apologies for the random order of the pictures - I tried placing the in-line with the text but things went a bit weird, so I have left them as is. :?
Thank you for having a look!
:thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Forgot to say - yes it’s a medieval spur buckle. This one is very similar.

Great selection of finds you have there :thumbsup:
