Trefoil escutcheon plate - 'probably Georgian or Victorian'

Post by Skytriker » Fri Aug 10, 2018 1:47 pm

My first outing with new Nox 800, mainly to get used to it. I was amazed at the number and quality of signals I was receiving and the feel and sound of machine [:) . The coins found were toasted, but this nice little escutcheon plate seemed worthy of more investigation. I was fascinated that the iron backing was still attached, making me wonder if it was the result of being wrenched open in the middle of this field.

Found on barley stubble. 5 inches deep on clay. Iron bias 3 and recovery 4. It was a strong but jumpy signal between 29 and 34. The escutcheon appears to be cast, but not sure of metal type.

Thanks

Roy

It is probably Georgian or Victorian I guess. I find a fair number with the remains of metal plates on them but no idea exactly what they are off of. ::g
