A medieval silver cut halfpenny of Stephen (1135-54); probably Awbridge type (N 881; Mack 99-135); c. 1154-58. The mint and moneyer are uncertain given the condition of the coin. The initial cross is visible and it is possible the surviving letters read RA although this is very unclear. If so, the moneyer may be Rauf (Gloucester), Raulf (London, Norwich) or Rapulf (Rye) as listed by Mack (1966, nos. 99-135). Diameter: 16.6 mm. Thickness: 1.1 mm Weight: 0.7 g Reference: Mack, RP 1966, 'Stephen and the Anarchy 1135-54', British Numismatic Journal 35, 38-112.

The hooked arms would have held a pair of chains for the suspension of the flask. The top of the swivel mechan…

A complete (although slightly damaged) lead alloy (pewter) mount dating to the Roman period. The mount is circular in plan and flat with an integrally cast spike or prong on the reverse. This prong would have secured the mount to a strap or piece of leaterh or the like.

The concentric rings form four panel however as no enamelling survives it is uncertain whether this mount was decorated in any other manner.
