Object type certainty: Certain
Workflow status: Published Find published

The find consists of three metal objects:

  1. Terminal of a flattened bar ingot; length, 31mm; weight 8.44 grams.
  2. Short, curved bar, with projections on one side and base; length, 22mm.
  3. Scrap piece; length, 13mm.

Surface metal analysis conducted at the British Museum indicated that A consists of lead-antimony with some tin and zinc; and B-C are of copper alloy.

The objects are not of precious metal and are of uncertain date, so do not qualify as Treasure under the stipulated criteria of the Treasure Act.
