Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A cast copper-alloy oval spectacle buckle. The strap bar is intact, triangular in section, 2.5 mm in width, but the pin is missing. The casting is crude; at one end of the strap bar is a small, chamfered knop and at the opposite end two shallow, parallel incised lines, on either side of a raised ridge, which continue the line of the strap bar to the edge of the buckle. The loops are D-shaped in plan and in section with bevelled vertical inside edges and rounded outer edges, but are otherwise undecorated. Some areas have dark green patina where the original surface survives. Whitehead …

Incomplete cast copper-alloy double loop asymmetrical knee buckle dating from the Post-medieval period.

A Post-Medieval silver-plated copper alloy contemporary forgery of a silver half crown of Charles I (1625-1649), Tower mint under Parliament, dating from 1643 onwards. The mint mark is the (R) which dates from 1644-1645 and the obverse is similar to the Group III half crowns, Type 3a3, third horseman with a vertical complete sword but the rider obliterated and an oval garnished shield on the reverse, Spink 2778. A large hole, 3.5 mm in diameter has been punched through the coin 6 mm in from one edge so more likely carried out to test and possibly deface the coin rather than to make it …

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Large cast copper alloy double-looped oval buckle frame with a moulded escallop with seven oblique grooves on each outer edge. The original surface has worn away in patches so that the decoration is unclear, but vines and scrolls are common motifs seen on these types of buckles and there appears to be a definite repeated pattern on the upper face of the strap bar. There is a small rounded knop at either end of the strap bar which is narrowed and flush with the frame. The knops are defined by oblique incised lines on either side. The surface is very corroded and pitted and the central s…

The back of the shell is hollow. Below the shell is a recessed transverse band above a raised collar which then tapers into the broken hook, now only 5 mm lon…

Object type: ROWEL SPUR
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Cast copper alloy spur rowel dating from the Post-medieval period c.1500-1700. The rowel is in the form of a six pointed star with narrow arms, 5 mm thick, which taper from the centre of the rowel and terminate in a point that is 3 mm thick. The arms are slightly flattened on both sides of the rowel, making them ovoid in section, but there is no other decoration. In the centre is a perforation which is circular in shape and measures 3 mm in diameter. Two of the points of the star are broken. Read (2016) illustrates a similar rowel with six points on p.71, no.510 which is dated from t…

Copper 24 deniers or double sols of Louis XV (1715-1774) of France referred to as a French colonial 'stampee', used in the West Indies, with a large crowned 'C' stamped on the obverse, but a blank reverse. The first coinage of stampees used worn, old coins. This second major coinage employed newly minted planchets, thus the coin is not a 'reformation' nor a traditional counterstamp. In 1763 the first stampee, or sol tampé, of 24 deniers was authorized. This was a small copper disk stamped on the obverse with a crowned C (for Colonies) and a blank reverse. From dates on the undertypes …
