Also found on Saturday in the new field and it was quite shallow in the ground.

It looks as though there may have been a hole in the broken leg/stem part. I wondered if it might have been a part of a spur, but that seems unlikely as it's all one piece.

early spur's would have a spinning pointed rowel or a fixed solid point although later example's the point was blunt.

Could it be off a fancy skirt lifter?

Thanks for the help with this, I'm still quite puzzled with it, but a pendant could be a real possibility. I wonder what the recess is on the reverse is for, could it be a casting mark?
