New permission and One item for ID

Post by roamingrob » Wed Dec 06, 2017 5:15 pm

Hi all, Well I have had my eye on one farm in my area for a long time but was never been able to get permission from the owner. A few months ago it changed hands and I was given the new owners mobile number by one of my farmers. I sent a text and got a reply within 15 mins and it was a yes
The farm has a manager on site who I had met before. So after some e mails to set it all up
Today was my first walk around. There is an old track across this farm leading to a high point and a monument on the 1600 maps.
I spent a couple of hours in the sunshine and had a few finds (below)
A watch key winder from a local watch maker late 1800s early 1900s. A lead item was found 7" down on pasture with my xp Deus in V4 hot program 12kh and a solid signal. looks like a bird with its head back Swan ?? do you think its a gaming piece or toy ? can not find a match yet !...
Thanks
Rob ::g

"There is a legend that the mute swan was introduced to Britain by Richard I in the 12th century, who brought them back from his campaigns during the Crusades. Today, ornithologists believe the bird is probably native to the country, with archaeological evidence for the presence of swans dating back as far back as the late glacial period, 10,000 years ago."

I noticed that... and I don't know more. You'd think the auction house would have tried to date/place it for valuation... maybe they couldn't easily ? There are ways to date lead, but they are very technical.Not sure who you should ask really. :-/

Not half John. This farm is on high ground with old tracks so you never know.

Pictures are a bit fuzzy but could the round object above the large buckle be a Roman pelta mount?
