Out on a local permission yesterday near Dere Street one or two interesting finds came up. Amongst the shotties and lead were a cup weight and a glass bead (No I havnt got a glass mode on my Nox). Ironically the glass bead came up in the same hole as an iron threaded nut. It's is approximately 9mm diameter by 3mm deep with a 1mm diameter hole through the centre. The glass is white/ light blue opaque, irridesant in places. I know glass is difficult to date but I do not feel this is a Victorian lace bobbin bead, any ideas?

The cup weight is cast alloy and has a line incised on the inside. The bottom is pierced and also has a fleur de lis stamped or cast into the bottom. It measures 25mm diameter by 22mm deep. Any ideas on the fleur de lis?

Easily done Reiver :thumbsup:

I’d say a bead from a lace bobbin is highly likely. Nice find :thumbsup:
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking
