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.

Fragment of a cast copper alloy ingot which would have originally been circular in plan and plano-convex in profile. This fragment is square in plan, triangular in profile, and rhomboidal in section, as it comes from one edge of the original ingot. Plano-convex ingots like this one were used during the Late Bronze Age, c.1150-700 BC. The surface of the ingot is pitted where air bubbles formed during the casting process. There are dark green and coppery brown areas and light green patches of bronze disease. Similar ingot fragments have been found in metalworkers' hoards in Cornwall dati…

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 …

Incomplete cast copper alloy Roman trumpet brooch with blue enamelled inlay. The trumpet-shaped head triangulates slightly to an apex beyond a recessed squared-off edge. There is no evidence of a headplate, but a vertical wire head-loop projects from the back across a hollow circular section to the other edge of the head which would have held the spring mechanism and pin, both now missing. The head of the brooch where the patina survives is plain. The decoration below the head on the bow comprises lozenge-shaped recessed cells, with some fragments of blue enamel still within them.

Cast copper alloy stud or tack, sexfoil in plan with moulded decoration in the form of a three-layered fleuret with six small petals around a central circle and then six larger petals emanating from these and alternating with six lobed leaves within six arches that are meant to represent more petals underneath, alternating with six knops which form the border at the edge of the stud. The corroded base of shank on the back of the stud may be the remains of a separate iron rivet as it is covered in iron corrosion product so it is hard to see if this is another piece of metal as most of t…

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…

Cast copper alloy dress hook or single sharp-hooked clasp with a square attachment loop, with four square attachment holes that are 1.5 mm squared, within it.

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…
