Swinging Queen Vic

Yesterday we had a club dig on a cold but dry morning. John provided mince pies and sloe gin which set everyone up for the morning. I found a fine bronze harness pendant swinger with the head of the young Queen Victoria. The shaft has a crude figure of a man on it.

weight = 33.32g, length = 67.1mm, width = 30.7mm, thickness of face = 4.22mm, 
top of shaft = 5.85 x 7.46 mm.

30 quarter, half and whole hammered coins and an Anglo-Saxon sceat were also found by others, probably a club record for one day.
