Some sort of strap end? And Hammy ID please

Post by Edurley »

Hi all,
Had a cracking day out yesterday with some great finds but could do with a bit of help with a couple of items. The first looks like a post medieval strap end, it is about 28mm in length with a couple of pins through it, but I am not too sure on it.
Also there is a heavily clipped Lizzy, I am thinking sixpence but I am not too sure as it is a lot smaller due to the clipping, if it is it will be a first for me which is always great :D

Thanks, the other side is pretty slick and not really too helpful especially with all the legend missing. The date makes it a Lizzy, the middle ring around the shield is about 18mm diameter but as it is now is a similar size to a Lizzy threepence from the heavy clipping. I am thinking it is a sixpence but I am moving house soon and already packed my Spinks away 8-|

Here is the back, not much to go on, I was hoping the size might give it away.

Hi Edurley,
It looks hinged-the pin bit ,so it’s perhaps not always bent round as is-
My first thought was part of the metalwork from a book cover?

It does have that look to it doesn't it. It is hard to see in the photos but there is a pin that goes through the square bit and through the other side and then again through the folded over bit that's why I thought some sort of strap end, but then again you would have thought the fleur would be at the end of the strap if this was the case. There is also a pin in the back of the fleur looking design. did books have leather straps? :-L

Book fitting was my first thought, too.

Some sort of electrical gubbins(I'm told it's a Deus). In various colours

Thanks A, and I think you are right on the other thing, most likely some sort of book metal work, thanks for all your input ::g
