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. It is very similar to a brass signet ring with 'W' ensigned by a coronet, probably found in Monmouthshire and of late medieval/early modern date (Williams 1993, no. D37). On the basis of letter form and hoop style, with charact…

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 …

With one exception, the English coins are all groats (4d) and apart from the survival of one heavier coin of Edward III, all have weights in keeping with the standard current at the t…

~~The ingots are all silver and comprise three complete and one fragmentary finger-shaped metal ingots with rounded ends, of silvery-grey appearance. The combined weight of this component of the hoard amounts to 115.09g, representing some 90% per cent of the total surviving weight of the hoard (127.77g).
