Just sharing my latest finds.

Post by MPower » Tue Nov 27, 2018 8:32 pm

Hi All
Had a great day last weekend, a couple of interesting objects that I’m just guessing at the moment.
I admit, some of the photos might be duplicated.
But in there, I believe there to be, 2 small (25mm) pawn like strap ends? A possible silver strap end, with an “X” stamped on it, and just noticed a small stamp above the”X” that I can’t make out!
Also in last weeks finds is a 1806/8 George 111 farthing, a crude medieval purse bar, a couple of nice buttons with details on the backs.
But guess my favourite is either the musket balls ( as there my first ones) and lastly what I believe to be is/ was an old bronze round broach ( you can notice the old saw lines cut into it, I’ve taking a few different angles of that poss broach.
All found on the same day. The land was ploughed and seeded, and pretty much all weren’t deeper than 8inchs
Using my Equinox 800, ( which I’m starting to really enjoy learning the machine) on field 2, bias 4, sensitivity 19-22.

Nothing special special but all meaningful to me.🙂

Thanks for reading

Possibly a Kings crown? Looks like you have a good old pewter button there too. Glad you're enjoying it. ::g

I just looked again at the 'brooch' thingy. It looks a bit too chunky and the lugs don't look right to be a brooch but I have no idea what it actually is, probably something practical though. :D
