A brooch which has been been constructed using a Medieval Silver hammered coin; a "canopy" type penny of William I dating to 1070-2. North 843.

The obverse of the coin which has been used as the back of the brooch shows a two column canopy covering a crowned and diademed bust facing with the face of the King and canopy still visible.

A small copper-alloy Roman bow brooch, Colchester derivative (double lug) type, dating to AD 43-100. This brooch has a white metal appearance, particularly on the upper surface. The reverse surface has a more coppery pale green colour. As a result of the visual appearance non-destructive X-ray fluorescence analysis has been conducted on the surface (Department of Scientific Research, British Museum, File No.7651-8, 08/09/2017). The results of this test confirm that the alloy is mostly of copper, with tin and lead. Thus the results confirm that this item does not fulfil the definition o…
