UPDATED PICS A couple of bits and a roman silver coin for ID please

Post by jon_boy » Sun May 19, 2019 10:53 pm

Hi all, ive been off for a while due to poor health but have managed to get back out and walking ok, so decided to hit a new field with my good friend and fellow member odinn.

Using my trusty at pro on a ploughed field we have had some good results. All were surface finds apart from the one which i think is a silver badge type thingy? It has a horse with rider on the front

Poor pic quality as only on the phone at the moment, if too bad for ID purposes then i will have to upload later in the week.

Also anyone know the best way to obtain field names please(tithe maps i think?) i dont mind paying for a online service!

Pics of recent finds below for ID please, i think the blue enamel one is a roman brooch

Anglo-Saxon, I suspect - probably 10th-11th century, Weetch type 20. And a very lovely thing it is, too.

Never mind the quality, but we need to feel the width. What's the diameter of the brooch?

Same goes for the ringy thingy. And is there any legible lettering on it?

I would say the brooch is Roman, the Anglo Saxon ones are made using a different technique.

The riveting is certainly very similar to the style of Roman studs I've found (although there's usually some eccentricity on those), so I'll happily bow to your better knowledge.

Just a quick pic of scale of items, the silver type pin/badge with a horse and rider on it, any clues to that piece please? Also no writing on the ring just a faint dotted pattern around the edge and lines all the way around it.

Re the silver badge thing: I found a very similar one yesterday and it has been kindly identified as the end off a dressage whip:

Makes even more sense given the design on yours.
