Object type: COIN HOARD
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Two silver groats of Henry VII, both struck at London between 1507 and 1509. Both have little wear and were found within 15 feet of one another. These coins are uncommon as stray finds and the presence of two so close together surely indicates that they comprise part of a hoard lost or deposited in the area and subsequently dispersed by agricultural activity. The lack of wear suggests that loss or deposition took place not many years after the coins were struck, probably circa 1510-25. Catalogue Henry VII, groat, Tower, pheon initial mark (North 1747), 1507-9, weight 2.95g Henry…

One half of a post-medieval silver cuff-link. Circular, with angled flange, crown above two hearts in low relief reserved on a stippled field, now very worn. Separate loop soldered to reverse. Diameter 14mm. Weight 0.8g. A well known type, see similar examples recorded on the PAS database including SUSS-E88264, SWYOR-52C053, NMS-3C11C7 and NMS-BE7442. The crowned hearts may refer to the marriage of Charles II to Catherine of Braganza in 1662.

County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Incomplete medieval silver annular brooch. Broken circular sectioned frame with two (probably of originally four) knops around the frame, each decorated with multiple stamped annulets but now worn smooth over much of the surface.
