County: Sheffield
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Lead Alloy, with silvered and gilt surface Medallion. A cast medallion, both sides identical, with a silver coating with gilding over it. A central motif of a head in profile right. The profile has a vaguely anatomical aspect, as if elements of the skull or musculature were emphasised; it is hairless and at all events does not appear to be a naturalistic portrait. A circumferential Latin legend reads: GERMANICUS NAVIGAT SOLO NULL, possibly translating as: A German never sails alone,or, in the light of comments rehearsed below, possibly 'No German sails alone'.. Paul Cannon kindl…

County: Essex
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Token or jetton of George III (1787). It was made to imitate a George III half guinea or so-called 'spade guinea', the name being taken from the spade-shaped shield on the reverse. There is a perforation above the bust, and it is likely that this item was used as a gaming piece. See also: NLM-18CC8C, LVPL-423866, IOW-37164D, LANCUM-069173

A group of nine modern lead Russian bag or bale seal dating from the late 18th to early 19th century, all recovered from the same general area.

Object type: BUTTON
Broad period: MODERN
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Cast copper alloy button, circular in plan and flat in profile, with a central circular setting which contains a blue glass stone. The stone has since been chipped so that it almost looks hexagonal, but was originally more facetted. The upper face of the button also appears to have a pattern of cross-hatching involving groups of five parallel lines at right angles to each other and overlapping to look like textile, but most of the original surface has corroded away. The back of the button has an oval attachment loop, now 5mm in length, which was probably originally circular but has si…

This incomplete artefact consists of a deep orange coloured oval shaped intaglio that is set at the centre of three concentric copper-alloy frames. These frames do not lay completely flat. The first frame holds the intaglio in place with a thin field of white 'paste/substance' between the two. The second frame is a 'Y' shape. The top of the 'Y' frame is level with the middle of the intaglio. The tail of the 'Y' extends down 4.49mm with a width of 7.08mm and thickness of 2.87mm before narrowing for a further length of 3.92mm with a width of 3.20mm and thickness of 1.94mm. The tail of t…

County: Lancashire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Lead or lead alloy mount, probably fairly modern 1800 to 1900AD, in the shape of a knight on a horse (the knight's head has come off & it looks like something may have come adrift under the horses hooves). It appears to have been mounted using a central stud. It measures 120mm long and 78mm wide. There is a copper alloy mount of similar subject on the PAS, BH-B91E31, but it has been attached at multiple points. It is worth noting that there were Pilgrim badges with a similar subject (possibly George & the Dragon)and made of the similar material (lead or lead alloy). There appears to b…

Copper alloy Possible Fob chain. Machine made wound wire chain. One end is wrapped four times around a cast round-section bar with angled ends, which, if this interpretation is sustained, would be inserted into a buttonhole. Towards the other end of the chain a tiny slotted plate is neatly folded to retain a fragment of drawn wire of 0.9mm diameter in paired loops within which it retains some play, and soldered to the wire chain. This was presumably attached to another object, now lost. The other end of the chain is broken and its full extent is now tightly coiled and inflexible. Th…

Copper alloy, plaster and glass Unknown. Cast cylinder with a flange around one end, and two circumferential ribs bearing a series of lozenges, probably to afford grip or to secure the cylinder. The inside of the cylinder bears three circumferential grooves at its flanged end. The other end contains the flat end of a tapered object of solid clear white (i.e. transparent) glass which was formerly held in place by a layer of white fixative. This resembles part of a 'cat's eye' reflector, albeit an early form. Suggested date: Modern, 1850-1950. Length: 29.9mm, Diameter (at ribs): 19.…

Copper alloy Loop. Oval loop with a handle made by twisting a length of flat rectangular section wire of 2.3mm width and 0.7mm thickness (with corrosion); the end has been cut with shears. Though green corrosion covers much of the wire, bright metal is exposed by abrasion at one end. This resembles the wire handle of a bottle brush, though deliberately cut, perhaps to serve as a toy for blowing soap bubbles. Suggested date: Modern, 1850-1950. Length: 134mm, Diameter (handle): 3mm, Weight: 5.62gms.

Copper alloy Plate. Possibly part of a fitting from farm machinery. Cast fragment comprising paired flanges whose outer edges bear deep longitudinal scratches, and a central oval-ended slot whose edge is sharpened by heavy wear; the object bears the stubs of parallel lugs opposite the flanges, broken at the same point on each side. Dr Kevin Leahy has kindly examined this object, and notes the traces of very heavy wear as significant in its identification. He kindly notes he has seen such objects before, and that, despite an attractive curvilinear form reminiscent of Late Bronze Ag
