a few corroded pennies and turners, but saved by a buckle chape - possible 1660-1720s, and a mystery item...if anyone has any ideas what it may be, would you let me know..thanks

The first item on the left is part of a 17th century spur buckle, like this one...

The other item is, I think, a post medieval strap end. A picture of the other side would confirm it :thumbsup:

Bet there's some good coins lurking near those!
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking
