Record ID: NMGW-2B30C7
Object type: FINGER RING
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: the Vale of Glamorgan

The reported object is a silver signet ring, now incomplete (part of hoop missing). It has a flat, circular bezel for the matrix, which has the form of a round-petalled quatrefoil within pellets in the inter-leaf spaces, within a single circular rope border. The shoulders are demarcated by simple transverse grooves, and the upper part of the hoop is decorated with triple vertical ridges and a random and unevenly punched pattern of open circles, presumably intended to represent pellets/pearls. A transverse groove and two hatched dashes below this indicate a change in the lower hoop dec…

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 find comprises sixteen silver coins: thirteen English groats, 1352/3-1526/9; one half-groat of Henry VII (1485-1509); and two double patards from the Burgundian Netherlands (1467-74). No associated items were reported. The latest coins in the group (nos 11-14) all belong to the early years of Henry VIII's second coinage, struck between 1526 and 1529, giving a consistent terminus in the late 1520s. 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). This points to a primary purpose of silver storage. The ingots are described individually: Ingot 1: thin finger shaped ingot with rounded underside and flatter top (slight central indent, probably an assaying nick). One end of the ingot has been chopped off. Maximum length 55.8mm; …

central device in the form of a merchant's mark (comprising an encircled cross above interlaced cross stems, between small quatrefoils), within a single rope/indented border. One shoulder is engraved with a tau cross, and a slight depression below may be the remains of a motif. The hoop is slightly distorted, and the shoulder with the tau cross has severe surface scratching. There is a slightly golden colour within border indents which may be gilding, but this is difficult to verify without cleaning.

The background is filled with asymmetrical vegetal scrolls, against a rusticated surface. Below the bust is a smaller triangular panel filled with what…
