Left hand sides looks like a foot off something. The one on the right I’ve no idea. Intriguing and worth keeping till you get a eureka moment :D
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking

Left hand side looks like a cup hook, any iron visable in the base of the widest bit ?

Don't scrap the one on the right,
I don't know what it is, but you have an emergency bottle opener to keep in your detecting bag!

Looking at the back of the larger item. At the top, at the recessed section , is it hinged. Keep thinking of a door Knocker, p-robably wrong.
How much does lead sell for ?
Cheers, :thumbsup:

The one on the right is something I have seen somewhere before. Can't call to mind precisely but door catch related. The round bit is exactly the same as I see on door bolts and catches/ spring latches here in France and dating from early 18th to late 19th century in broad terms.
Live long and prosper.
