Medieval button, or more modern?

Post by Swany » Mon Sep 24, 2018 5:16 pm

Wee dig today, Scotland, using the nox again, another dozen musket balls x;

A couple of strap mounts, I think.

Was interested in an ID of age on the lead button, cross decoration on front and remains of the loop on the back. Medieval?

A copper M or W?

Bit of a bronze pot.

Livery button still has cloth attached, maybe ripped off in a moment of passion with a frisky sheep, well we are in welly country.. :D

Cheers.

Button looks medieval. Very similar to one of mine on the PAS web site.

medieval lead button.......I would say YES its medieval ::g

quite similar..though they can be tricky to date this one is dated from: Circa AD 1350
Date to: Circa AD 1500...so I would put yours around late medieval period that's my conclusion
