A corroded but complete cast lead button of post-medieval date (Th. without loop: c. 9.1mm). The button is domed, with a flat back with central, integral iron loop of circular cross-section; no casting seam is visible. The upper surface bears patterning moulded in low relief, consisting of lines and circles around a central cross, but with obvious symmetry. Read (2005, 57ff.) dates such buttons to the 16th century.

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete cast copper-alloy double-looped buckle of post-medieval date, now missing its pin. The buckle is sub-rectangular in form, effectively a rectangle with the corners cut off; one of the outer edges is not straight. The buckle is flat and plain and has corroded to a red-brown colour overlain by patches of light green corrosion product. Such a buckle can plausibly be dated to the 17th century, although a slightly later date cannot be ruled out (cf. Griffiths et al., 215; ref. 3001).

An extremely worn, broken and bent, probably irregular late 17th-century copper-alloy halfpenny of William III, first issue, London mint, dated '1795' AD (cf. Spink 3554). Around a quarter of the original flan survives after ragged old breaks. This may have been broken deliberately after it was discovered to be a fake. Suggestive features are an incorrect die axis measurement, an unbarred 'A' on the reverse and an unclear date which appears to read '1795'.
