Tadd cold in the wind but pleasant sunny day, if I only found these two things today I would be happy, although had a pot / caldron foot, a Vicky half penny 1861 with a lovely patina, another buckle and possible copper alloy finger ring although a bit crushed.

A lovely Fly Terret, still got a bit of gilding in places and still swings a little

And triangular buckle, it has a grove around all the outside edges and indentations around the inside edge, unsure of age and can’t find a match in the buckle info I have, I did think brooch but doesn’t look like there was a catch plate for the pin

Had a quick search in the PAS and found a very similar Brooch :thumbsup:

All data downloaded from GPS, detector all charged up ready for another day tomorrow, and search for the other half of the coin I found the other day

Nice to see a complete fly terret, and the brooch is also an unusual find. Great day you had there :thumbsup:
