Any help with this item?

Post by WightGrubber » Fri May 18, 2018 1:37 pm

I found this on a club dig earlier this week. The other members didnt know what it was and the FLO wasnt sure either. My wife says its a crown badge of some sort, bits missing obviously. I think she's right. Pilgrim badge? Its some sort of lead alloy. Just wondered what the forum thought as Im a bit stuck.

I'm afraid that it looks a bit like the reains of cheap modern jewelry. The dimples may have had paste stone glued in to them at one point. :D

Seriously! Just my luck. It looks ancient in the hand. And crude too. Thanks for the reply Fred.

Hmmm? Obviously once part of something, perhaps a brooch or pilgrims badge even. It quite reminds me of one of those semi interesting looking blackened brittle bits of pewterish green waste, though it may well be something old. Hope you get a better ID. ::g

Possible deteriorated badge - similar to this?

Thanks for the replies all. Just to add a bit of context to this oddity, it was found in a field, really quiet ground, no blips, hardly any iron. 2 hammered had been pulled out on the same day. The field next door we're yeilding hammereds and one member found a Saxon pin. Could still be part of the farmers wife's costume jewelry though... :-/
