Copper alloy badge. Die stamped badge in a form resembling a finely rayed Garter star of eight points with a wreath around a central rose. A scroll below bears the legend East Yorkshire. Enamel traces remain: as a cobalt blue ground for the legend, and a spot of white from the Yorkshire rose. A drawn wire catch plate for a hinged pin [lost] is set on the back. This may be a detached cap badge, though a function such as a regimental tie pin or lapel badge might also be entertained.

Copper alloy possible mount fragment. Rectangular cast plate of thickness 1mm bearing a curvilinear motif divided into reserved areas and deeper zones or cells filled with enamel; all within a narrow border.

Incomplete cast copper alloy Roman disc brooch with a plain edge, oval in plan and flat in profile. The upper face of the brooch is decorated with a central six-pointed star or sexfoil, each point terminates in a circular lobe, within a blue enamelled field. The centre of the sexfoil has a raised circular boss which also has blue enamel inlaid around it. This shape within the disc, of a sexfoil with lobes, in a field of blue enamel also compares well to the Roman plate brooches with projecting knops, so it may have been emulating these more elaborate brooches. The reverse of the brooch…

An incomplete cast copper-alloy double-looped buckle and plate dating to the Medieval period, c. 1150-1250. The object is formed of a rectangular sheet-metal plate, with a constricted midsection which loops around the rear edge of the buckle frame to form a 'U' shaped profile. The plate was originally riveted together at its back edge with two circular-sectioned dome-headed copper-alloy rivets, though one of these is now missing due to old damage, which has also served to distort one edge of the plate.

Copper alloy unidentified object fragment. Cast oval plate with a broad plano-convex stem springing from a narrow basal bar. The bar has diagonal nicks along what is taken to be its display face, and an apparently broken lug below it. A roughened surface on the opposite long edge might hint at an originally symmetrical arrangement with a similar feature lost. A plain field of mid blue enamel covers one side of the oval plate with a reserved border. This object appears to be a decorative component from a larger object; the dull surface and tint of the enamel prompts the speculative ascr…
