An incomplete copper alloy pin of Early Iron Age date (c. 800-600 BC). The remaining section of the pin consists of the head, which has three moulded ribs, and a length of the circular sectioned shank. The remains of the pin has been coiled, possibly to make the item smaller and easier to transport or store (for example if it was going to be melted down), or possibly it has been reshaped with the intention of being used as a finger ring. An identical pin, complete and in its original state, has been recorded from Quainton in Buckinghamshire - see BUC-1D3758 on this database.

A complete but slight damaged cast copper alloy fob dangler or dress fitting dating to the Late Iron Age (c. 100 BC - AD 80).

The fob features three openwork circles joined around a central triangular plate, which forms the base of the integrally cast suspension / attachment loop that extends from the reverse of the object. The loop is complete but one section is now broke…

A complete Late Iron Age gold stater of the Western Region / Dobunni, dating from c. AD 20-43. The coin is struck for the ruler Eisu, and appears to be a variant of both ABC 2075 (Cottam et al's 'Eisu Ricu') and ABC 2078 (Cottam et al's 'Eisu Tree'). The style of the horse suggests it maybe ABC 2078, which is a more common issue than ABC 2075.
