Incomplete copper alloy post medieval double loop trapezoidal buckle, missing one loop, but with pin intact. The loop has a trefoil outer edge with three rounded knops and a groove in the middle of the central knop for the pin rest. The strap bar also has rounded knops at either end and is flush with the frame. The second loop of the buckle has broken off where it would have met the knops at the end of the strap bar.

Copper alloy finger ring, oval in profile and D-shaped in section, with projecting keeled shoulders which rise to a high oval bezel, outlined with incised V-shaped grooves on each shoulder. The upper part of the ring is in quite good condition, well made with a smooth patination. The stone is missing and may have been made of glass or carnelian, as all that remains is an oval patch of black material that would have held the stone in the setting. The stone would likely have had intaglio decoration. Middleton (1998) illustrates a similar ring with recessed shoulders and an oval carnelia…

Post Medieval silver French dixième d'écu dit "aux branches d'olivier" (10 centime piece with olive branches) of Louis XV (1710-1774) dated to 1750 on the reverse. Fractions of the silver ecu were introduced in 1726. The reverse has an oval shield enclosing three fleurs de lys surmounted by a crown and framed by two olive branches. Although the coin is rubbed almost flat, it must have been milled and not hammered, as hammered coins ceased to be produced in France after 1645. The obverse is completely worn away, but a coin with the same reverse (SUSS-862DA2) is illustrated on the data…

Cast lead alloy button with a raised moulded cross on the front face and an integral cast short rectangular shank pierced for attachment on the back. Although the button is crudely made, the type of shank suggests that it is post-medieval in date. According to Bailey (2004) buttons of the Medieval period, dating from the 13th to the 15th century, usually have a cast circular loop for attachment, and a straight casting line on the reverse, as does a lead alloy button illustrated on p.17, fig.6.1. But Bailey also illustrates a lead alloy button with a pierced rectangular shank and no cas…

Copper alloy French shield jetton, struck in Tournai c.1417-1497, after 1423 when Charles VII (1422-1461) introduced the silver Blanc à la coronelle (coin), and late in the 15th century as it is a thick 'piefort' or piedfort, which means heavy foot, jetton, weighing 6.25 g. The introduction of the thick piefort jettons during the 15th century appears to have resulted from the popularisation of a new method for performing the calculations for manual accountancy. A collection of stationary jettons which were heavier like this example were issued as reference points for the lighter mobil…

Copper alloy nummus of Constantine II as Caesar (317-337), Reece period 17, dating from AD 330-335, GLORIA EXERCITVS reverse type depicting two soldiers facing each other with a spear in one hand and the other resting on his shield, with two standards between them with triangular tops. The mint mark on the reverse is mostly missing but appears to be three letters, so perhaps PLG for Lyons or Lugdunum, and the triangular tops can be seen on coins of this type minted in Lyons, or Trier which could be TRP as in the example below from Cornwall. See record WMID-D5ECB3 for a similar coin of…
