A couple of hammered for ID

Post by Spearhead »

found with my Nox 800. Field 1. One came in at 11 and the other at 16. Only about 4" deep.
I think the left hand one is a round half penny and the right hand one is possibly a penny that has been clipped.
I also have included pictures of a gilded medieval harness pendant from the same area. This came in at number 20. I am guessing it's quite early, maybe 13th century? Shame it's broken. The form reminds me of an animal skin spread out ( think rug) and being heavily gilded I wonder if it was meant to depict the Golden Fleece?
