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.

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…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
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…

Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Cast copper alloy spur rowel dating from the Post-medieval period c.1500-1700. The rowel is in the form of a six pointed star with narrow arms, 5 mm thick, which taper from the centre of the rowel and terminate in a point that is 3 mm thick. The arms are slightly flattened on both sides of the rowel, making them ovoid in section, but there is no other decoration. In the centre is a perforation which is circular in shape and measures 3 mm in diameter. Two of the points of the star are broken. Read (2016) illustrates a similar rowel with six points on p.71, no.510 which is dated from t…

Copper 24 deniers or double sols of Louis XV (1715-1774) of France referred to as a French colonial 'stampee', used in the West Indies, with a large crowned 'C' stamped on the obverse, but a blank reverse. The first coinage of stampees used worn, old coins. This second major coinage employed newly minted planchets, thus the coin is not a 'reformation' nor a traditional counterstamp. In 1763 the first stampee, or sol tampĂ©, of 24 deniers was authorized. This was a small copper disk stamped on the obverse with a crowned C (for Colonies) and a blank reverse. From dates on the undertypes …
