Happy days! At last finding some stuff, a nice comfortable temperature, Rape field has been cultivated / disked and although a tad dry and hard digging but productive.
I will try to get some better pictures of the brooch when I set the camera up with the Macro lens and have a further look on the PAS to verify

Image

A lovely zoomorphic plate brooch with some enamelling, looks like the shape of a duck or goose, looks like it may be Roman, similar one on the PAS, Shame the head is missing, 1792 Edinburgh Halfpenny token, buckle part, lead hem weight
A terret swinger, large Roman coin, possible broach part? Decorative mount, livery button
3 small roman coins, Royal Marines Light Infantry button & a George V 1929 Farthing
Image

The large Roman, looks like someone standing behind two shields, weight 18.78 grams, had a look through but no luck so far on an ID
Image
Image

And the also ran’s
Badly cast lead shot, few buttons, George III halfpenny, two other coins, cow horn protector
Crotal bell fragment, drawer handle, harness buckle part,
Had very little scrap or rubbish so that's a bonus too

Image
Only 1.33 acres done of a 45-acre field so looks promising

Looking like a big fat Commodus from here :thumbsup:

Edit - or maybe not (I must learn to spell) :D

What a belter of a day you had there, chap. That field looks like it'll be keeping you busy for a good while.

Great finds bag. That livery button is interesting - a heron with a fish in it’s beak? Lovely thing :thumbsup:

Shame that roman brooch isn’t intact but either way it’s a great find. Looks to be a very good field Steve.
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking

I think the large Roman is
Commodus (177-192), Sestertius, Rome Laureate head
Rv. VICTORIAE FELICI, Victory flying holding open wreath over two shields which are on a base/ plinth

It could be a BECKFORD family livery button.

That is very likely due to the area it was found, I have found other like it :thumbsup:
Thanks for your expertise in this field :thumbsup:

Great days detecting there Steve. I’m not much good on Roman stuff but there is one thing I can I.D.
5th pic down, top left is a Cow Horn Protector. I’ve got a few of them. Thought for ages the were some sort of drawer knob till someone put me right.
The thing with the holes in it looks like a shoe heel guard, maybe :thumbsup:

I have quite a collection of cow horn protectors too, They give such a good signal, the thing with the holes in I think after a further look could be the internal plate of a fob watch

Plenty of interesting finds, Steve.
Like the Roman, tokens and the RMLI button.
Interesting to see how far you searched on your last photo.
Cheers, :thumbsup:
Dave.
