Yesterday I joined a club metal detecting dig and found some interesting objects:
|Army Service Corps cap badge|
This is not a contemporary design. The corps was formed in 1870 and had the name Royal added in 1918. The corps motto is in the middle: HONI SOIT QUI MAL Y PENSE
|14thC belt decoration|
Tudor Buckle 1485-1600, 18x14mm
Shortcross Penny: 1180-1242 (Henry II, Richard I, John, Henry III)
It is difficult to determine which monarch this coin was minted for as the same pattern was used during these reigns. This coin is worn on the obverse side and struck off centre on the reverse with wear making identification difficult. It may be Class 5 1204-9:
|Edward Penny as found|
|Edward penny after straightening|
It could be Edward I,II or III (1272-1377) as these coins are similar.
This Victoria threepence dated 1884 has a hole drilled in it, perhaps as a charm or pendant.
|George II halfpenny 1727-1760|
