Think it says St Luke's then underneath - something school and looks like date on it is maybe 1853.
Will put a pic of what it looks like now and then I will.read up on best way to take photos of finds for viewing and identification on here. Found the other item close to it not sure what it is though.

Sounds like it belonged to a school...
Good place to start your research into it
To be honest with cleaning something thats already fragile, then you need to either leave it as is, or just be very carefull with like water and a soft toothbrush etc...

Hammered silver 2019 - 20
Am just reading up on how to identify different metals etc. Have been out on a grass field today and really enjoyed it as didn't seem to be digging up as much trash and felt like I had a rough idea on what a couple of the tones were as it's a bit overwhelming when you are new to it.

Was out at half six this morning and just got in. What a difference a couple of days make! A few.days ago just seemed to be finding loads of iron and bits of farm machinery so went back out after having
good day yesterday and think I have struck lucky on a field i have permission. Found around 20 to 30 coins a few really old ones, little round heavy lead balls got about 7 think they maybe musket balls, I've been looking forward to finding those and lots of what looks like some sort of cap. Have put a pic on here of them.
Down the other end of the field, i dug on a signal and found a broken gold signet ring and two old pound coins which I was happy with. Downside was when I was finding the old coins I found a lovely old shiny silver coin which my little lad managed to lose. I will be going back to find that lol. I also managed to lose the arm rest part off my new detector
I am going to get everything cleaned up a bit then will post some proper photos. Has anyone got any idea what sort of coin it is from the pic and from what time period lo
It looks like 1302 but can't see it properly yet and i haven't got a clue about dates etc so probably miles out.
