Hi, had 3 hours today and thought I had found my first ever cut quarter but it turned out to be two thirds of a cut half of Henry III without sceptre. I think it is a class 2 or 3 dated to 1248 - 1250 AD but am happy to be corrected. Also found was the lead item with Religious markings on it (small cross in the bottom right corner of a larger cross) and I wondered if anyone could I.D. that as well.
Both items found with a Deus on GMP with GB at 88 and 5 tones on newly seeded and rolled field.
Thanks in advance and regards to all,

Lead seal of some sort. The outer groove that the cord went in has partly broken away
Flax or cloth would be my guess.

It looks like part of a papal bulla.
