Couple of hammies today 11th Jan 2019

Well I could never hope to match my club chairmans's Bronze Age sword find but I did fairly well on one of our well detected sites. I did blank on here twice this week I should add. So its is swings and roundabouts as always in this hobby. Always nice when you can come back with something for your efforts of course :)

Top row: Short cross, battered Charles I or lizzie (help!), 2 x lead farmers tokens
Bottom row: Uknown part of an artefact (aka partefact) and a solitary button

So the short cross will be a Richard, John or Henry II ?. Every time I have a stab at these I get it wrong so again.. all help fully appreciated. Just a light clean was all I gave it.

And the battered hammy

And finally the partefact which I am not sure on either (strap end or fastener of some type ?)

Thanks for looking and hope some of you are getting out and having your own luck ::g
