A complete silver gilt penny of Coenwulf. East Anglian mint, Early group, c. 798, moneyer: Lul (North 1994, 94, ref. 362). Gilded Anglo-Saxon pennies are uncommon. Without any sign of a mounting for use as a brooch or pendant, for example, it is unclear why such pennies were gilded. A gilded penny of Cuthred of Kent (798-807), mint: Canterbury (probably), moneyer: Sigeberht, has been recorded from Ipsden Parish, Oxfordshire. See Portable Antiquities Scheme find: BERK-78D8C5.

Part of a cast copper alloy mount (possibly) of probable Early-Medieval date AD 410 – AD 1066). Length: 29.5mm, width: 29.6mm and 2.7mm thick. Weight: 4.88g.

At the ‘bottom’ a central projection, which has an old abraded break, resembles part of the bow of a brooch. H…

Complete gold suspension loop, possibly from a bracteate of Early Early-Medieval date (AD 400 - AD 600). Treasure case no. BM2005 T408. Width 5 mm, maximum diameter 5 mm. Weight 0.66 g. The pendant is made from a thin rectangular strip of sheet gold which has four lightly moulded longitudinal ribs. The square-cut ends overlap from slight crushing. The loop may be from a bracteate rather than any other sort of pendant as the double ribs either side of a broad central furrow are a feature of several bracteates, but do not seem to occur on other Anglo-Saxon pendants of later date.
