The object is a silver grosso issued by the Italian city of Bergamo (ref: CNI IV, 45/138). The coin has the image and name of the Emperor Frederick II, king of Sicily, and dates to the mid decades of the 13th century - c. 1250s-60s. The coin would have been produced to a good standard of metal, certainly over 90% fine silver. Its current weight is 1.49g, which is probably about a gram less than its original weight. Bergamese grossi would not have been current in 13th century England and I know of no other example found here. It has in any case been substantially altered and it could n…

Medieval gilded silver collet probably from an annular brooch. Oval at the base, tapering to a circular setting which retains a pale powdery material, probably cement to hold the now missing stone.

A complete example of an early 14th century brooch of similar construction was found at Broxtead, Essex (PAS database num…
