Description The reported object is a silver gilt devotional reliquary pendant (weight 17.613g.). It is of rounded arch niche form, with one hinged door.

The find comprises one gold and fourteen silver medieval English coins, of the reigns of Edward III (1), Henry VI (12) and two uncertain pennies. Metal content English silver coins of the 14th-15th centuries are typically of silver of high fineness, in excess of 90% Ag by weight. The gold standard is virtually pure precious metal (23ct 3½gr, or 99.5%). Discussion The fifteen coins appear to form a single group, lost or deposited in the middle of the fifteenth century. The earliest coins, of Edward I-II(?) and Edward III (1327-77) are considerably worn through circulation, whereas tho…

The find comprises two groats (4d pieces) of Edward III (1327-77), minted at London: 1. Series C, c.1351-2, North 1147; 4.16 g / 64.2 grains 2. Series D, c. 1354-5, North 1163; 4.30g / 66.3 grains. The two coins are in fairly fresh condition and likely to have been deposited within a few years of going into circulation. A series of other objects found in the same general area (see Treasure Receipt Form) were submitted for consideration as associated objects. In my opinion, none is likely to have been associated in the ground with the two coins. A silver penny of Elizabeth I …

The circular bezel is engraved with a capital letter W surrounded by three sprigs, within a single row pellet border. The bezel has a diameter of 12.3 x 13mm; the internal diameter of the hoop is 23.4mm; external hoop diameter 27,8mm; thickness of hoop 1.5mm; weight 16.29g. In terms of form and style, the signet ring is a well known early post-medieval type.
