Enameled Buckle

Post by bryan162 »

I have been detecting for 30 years now and you tend to come across things now and again a bit different, so it turned out on my last trip out. While out on Sunday I had a faint signal with a hint of iron (all the makings of a nice deep target), digging down what turned out to be 9 inches I came across this lovely buckle at a 45 degree angle. My immediate thought was it is heavily corroded showing a lot of verdigris, being it was one of those really sticky days (persistent drizzle, ploughed field and wheat stubble laying everywhere)it went straight into my finds pouch after recording. After cleaning on Tuesday the green verdigris turned out to be green enamel which for me is the first enameled buckle I have ever seen. Anybody else found one?
I also managed another first by pulling out the center section of a Medieval purse bar, all in all a very interesting session.
