Couple of items for ID please

If anyone could help with an ID on both these items please that would be very much appreciated .

Both items found using Q40 , sensitivity 75 .

The first item is lead and looks to be some sort of pendant ? Defined loop at top with what appears to be an "X" design to the centre . Found about 5 inches down in soft sandy soil .Any ideas on age or period ? Thanks

Second item found yesterday . About 6 inches down on same land as above find . Half round with flat back . I think possibly pewter . Iron spoke protruding which may have been part of a loop at one time . Although not clear on the image there is a very feint pattern either flowers petals or diamond shapes but very hard to distinguish .

Many thanks in advance .

I've seen pilgrim badges/pendants similar to that. The other piece favours a steelyard weight. ::g
