CELTIC BRONZE COINS

My first copper Iron Age coin. The closest match I can find is from the associates of Tasciovanus. Obverse, head facing right, inscription ANDOCO. Reverse, horse facing right, inscription AND, 17BC-10AD. M.200; V.1871; BMC2019-20.(205)

     

ROMAN BRONZE COINS

At last my first Roman coin. This is a small bronze/copper AE4 type possibly Postumus 260-268AD, it is difficult to tell with so little detail.

A Roman coin of (TRAIANVS HADRIANVS) Hadrian 117-138AD. Known as a Dupondius and made from Roman mountain brass, Orichalium.

Another coin (Sestertius) from the reign of Hadrian 117-138AD. Inscriptions are illegible but the reverse resembles Britannia seated. The book says "Extremely Rare!" but there are many variations in Roman coinage and the coin is too poor to know for sure.

This Roman coin came from a club dig and was one of only two found that day.

A small bronze coin which probably dates to the late Roman Empire, roughly 300 to 400AD.

This coin is probably a Dupondius and dates to the early Roman Empire. Even though everything is worn smooth the head is still quite raised and this suggests to me that it might be one of those early Emperors like Nero, Hadrian etc. Who Knows!

This Roman Coin looks like it has seen better days, still it's nice when you get one!

This small coin shows a figure standing on the reverse. It’s a shame the obverse has corroded away so I can’t see who the Emperor is.

One of the smallest Roman coins I have ever found and in good condition too!

I've been told this coin is of Emperor Crispus and dates to the late Roman Empire.

Another nice find! This time it's Empress Faustina Jnr who was wife of Marcus Aurelius.

I believe this Roman Sestertius to be of Emperor Marcus Aurelius 161 to 180AD.

This corroded Dupondius shows a figure seated on the reverse. I think it might be Faustina Jnr but it’s hard to tell.

A Better than average late Roman Bronze.

This large bronze Sestertius from the reign of Hadrian 117-138AD is my favourite Roman coin to date. It took me nearly an hour to reveal its hidden detail.

I believe this Dupondius to be attributed to Emperor Titus who ruled over the Empire between 79 and 81AD.

This coin like many of the later Roman Empire boasts the ruler wearing a radiate crown and for this reason they are called Radiates.

Another Roman Radiate I found recently.

Late Roman bronze depicting a helmeted Emperor.

A late Roman radiate showing a vase or jug on reverse. This coin is also quite crude suggesting in may be a barbarous radiate or contemporary forgery.

Very worn late bronze with figure standing on reverse.

Another late bronze radiate.

The reverse on this coin appears to show the crude image of a stag and at first sight gives the coin a more Celtic appearance rather than Roman.

A Roman bronze that’s seen better days!

A nice bronze Radiate coin of Claudius II Gothicus (268-270).

A copper AS from one of the adoptive Emperors, possibly Trajan (98-117).

Small 4th Century coin with figure standing on reverse.

A smashed bronze from the late empire.

A Barbarous Radiate showing head facing right. The period for most of these imitation coins is late 3rd Century.

Another Barbarous Radiate.

This coin although badly corroded is another from the 4th Century.

A shame the plough got to this 4th Century coin before I did.

Badly corroded late era Roman grot.

Copper AS of Domitian, AD81-96. Domitian was an emperor from the Flavian dynasty.

An example of a late Roman coin of Emperor Crispus, AD317-326. This ruler was a son of Constantine the Great who became the first Christian Emperor.

The portrait on this coin closely resembles Magnentius, 350-353, but the corrosion makes it difficult to be sure.

Another badly corroded coin from the late empire.

A nice late Roman coin, possibly barbarous, showing eagle on reverse.

Worn coin showing the helmeted bust of Urbs Roma, after 330AD.

A late 4th Century coin showing head facing right.

A head peeping through the corrosion layer on this coin hints tantalizing clues of our ancient past.

Late bronze Radiate with galley on reverse.

A late Roman bronze, possibly a VOT type.

My first Follis coin. Not sure about the Emperor yet so any help would be appreciated.

Emperor Vespasian Dupondius, Rome AD 71. Obverse, IMP CAES VESPASIAN AVG COS III. Reverse FORTVNAE RADVCI.

Chipped Hadrian Dupondius, 117 – 138AD.

Nice chestnut coloured Sestertius of Antoninus Pius. This coin was found exactly where “X” marked the spot after weeks of research.

Badly chipped AD 96 Roman Dupondius of Domitian. As Emperor Domitian's reign was popular with the army and his subjects, but his totalitarian characteristics caused problems with the senate who saw him as a tyrant.

Urbs Roma, after 330AD. Obverse, helmeted bust of Roma. Reverse, She-wolf suckling twins.

Worn bronze from the mid to late Empire.

Small Roman bronze.

Late Roman bronze coin.

This coin dates to the late Empire. After 330AD.

Unusual shaped coin with stag on reverse. Probably late 3rd Century.

VOT X Type late Roman bronze, possibly Julian II 360 – 363AD but uncertain.

Small Roman Bronze.

Badly chipped late Roman Bronze.

Very late Roman bronze. Possibly Constantine III, but with very little detail it's difficult to tell.

An exceptionally rare coin!!! Carausius, Diocletian & Maximianus Antoninianus. 292 - 293 AD, Camulodunum mint. CARAVSIVS ET FRATRES SVI, jugate, radiate & cuirassed busts of Maximianus, Diocletian & Carausius left / PAX A-VGGG, Pax standing left, holding olive-branch & vertical sceptre. Thanks to Wildwinds for identification.

Nice Roman Bronze.

Another late Roman.

Antoninianus of Constantine the Great, 306 – 337 AD.

Small silvered late Roman bronze.

Another Urbs Roma! After 330AD.

Billon Antoninianus of Probus, cuirassed bust right. Reverse: MARS VICTOR, Mars walking right, holding spear and trophy. 276 - 282 AD.

Nice Roman Coin of Constantine The Great AD 307-337. Obverse, Cuirassed bust facing left, CONSTANTINVS AVG. Reverse, Sol standing left, head radiate, chlamys over left shoulder, raising right hand, globe in left, SOLI INVICTO COMITI, PLN in exergue, S F in field. London Mint.

Mid to late Roman bronze. I find more of these than any other Roman object.

Another bronze coin from the late Empire.

A corroded Late Roman bronze coin.

Vespasian Eagle sanding on a globe type copper AS, 69-79 AD.

Cleaned and worn late Roman bronze.

Coin of the mid to late Empire.

BRONZE ARTEFACTS

A men's bronze finger ring originally gilded with horse under shoe motif.

Two Small thimbles. (Probably Copper.)

Find update! It is now believed that this object is part of a collection of items known as staff terminals. This particular item found back in August 2003 is a good example of the Winchester style and dates roughly between 1000-1100AD. You can read more about this find in The Portable Antiquities Scheme Annual Report 2003-2004.

A little tailor's thimble known as a thymel. Dates between 1575 to 1625. Wow, this gave a quite a signal for its size, I was expecting a copper Cartwheel Penny or something.

There will always be a case where it is difficult to classify where an object should be placed. Although this whistle is made of white metal and not bronze I had to include it because I think that it is such a charming little object. It still works too!!!

A nice white metal plated copper button with insignia "Pollet Virtus," means, virtue excels Reeves coat of arms. (A family livery button.)

This is a gilded button of the Alliance Insurance Company pre 1965. Made in London and probably commemorating the start of the company in 1824. Cat No. G145 G Civilian Uniform Buttons 19th - 20th Century by D. G. Blair.

A button with the Lion and Unicorn coat of arms made in Birmingham. In this case the Kings Crown and worn by most infantry regiments between 1872 to 1924. Cat No. 541 Buttons of The Regular Army 1855-2000 by Howard Ripley.

This is a button from the Oxford University Rifle Volunteers and is likely to date from 1887-1908.

Another Bronze thimble.

I found this thimble about 9ins down over land I must of detected on about 20 times. I suppose this shows the advantages of having an Excelerator coil for my MXT.

It took quite a while to straighten out this battered brass thimble.

A very small bronze finger ring with a three leafed clover design.

What a lovely item to find on Christmas Eve! This fragment of metal is a Bronze Age axe head and dates to roughly 1000BC, you can clearly see the rounded blade which incidentally is still sharp even after 3000 years.

A small 19th Century belt hook in the form of a coiled snake.

I found this medieval greyhound spout when on a Christmas dig with a local club.

This is the first nickel thimble I have found and by the looks of things its probably not the last!

I think I may have to create a thimbles page!

Part of a Fob Seal which would originally have been attached to a watch. About 1720-1780 in date and one of my favourite finds. I have included a putty imprint so you can see what a wax seal might have looked like.

A pewter crotal bell, possibly medieval and amazingly it still rings even after all those years. It looks as though the maker's mark is a small hammer inside a shield, you can just see it on the bottom right hand side of the picture.

A nice ornate bronze buckle which probably dates around roughly 1650 to 1800.

Another one of the charming little crotal bells. Again this one's made from pewter and has the maker's mark "W G" on the bottom.

Above is a rather battered and squashed Late 15th Century cast bronze thimble.

After quite some time I managed to identify this object as an 18th Century pastry cutter.

An Early 20th Century pressed buckle with hammered finish design.

These bronze thimbles just keep on coming up!

Thimble number twelve.

An absolute cracker! I believe that this is an army button, but I have been unable to trace the regiment it belongs to. Anyone out there have any ideas?

The third fully complete crotal bell I have found. This time in bronze instead of pewter.

Here's a strange thing. I found all ten of these small buckles on the same area of a field. I wonder what was going on there?

People from my club tell me that this object is either a barrel lock key, or Grandfather clock winding key and probably dates to roughly the middle of the 19th Century.

Another nice army button with original gilding. It's a shame I can't find the regiment it belongs to.

A nice pewter buckle with shell type design. I'm not sure on age but it looks 18th Century to me.

Find update! It turns out that this object is a Roman buckle and is much older than I thought it was. Thanks to Ros Tyrell my local FLO for an identification on this object.

It doesn't look like much but this is the second Bronze Age find I have made. This fragment of metal comes from a double bladed dagger or knife and dates between 2500-500BC

It came as quite a shock when I found this item. My local museum tells me it's a sword belt fitting and dates around 1550-1600.

This item is a small green glass good luck pendant. It looks like it was probably made in the late Victorian period; of course I could be wrong. What do you think?

A very nice example of a Tudor Spectacle Buckle. It still has the pin fully intact.

Another Spectacle Buckle, again from the Tudor Period.

A tiny bronze finger ring found on a club dig.

An absolute delight! Bronze Age axe fragments are always nice to come by and the museum always gets very excited when I find these items.

This buckle has a nice floral design and probably dates to the 18th Century.

This army cap badge shows the emblem for Oxford and Buckinghamshire Regiment.

Wow another axe fragment and from a field that has only ever produced 18th Century stuff. Just proves that you never know what you might find!

An army cap badge from the Fusiliers.

This buckle dates between 1620 and 1680.

A token that looks as though it might have something to do with hot air ballooning.

An 18th Century token with an exotic palm tree design.

A Small token dated 1662. Not sure what the value would have been. Half something!

Two more bronze thimbles. I seem to be building up quite a collection.

A nice glass intaglio which seems to show a lady in Roman classical dress collecting water from a water pump. Probably dates around 1790 to 1850.

An Anglesey Mines Penny Token. Parys Mine Company was the first to issue tokens for payment to their workers in the 1780s. It says Redeemable in London and Anglesey around the edge.

Keeping it in Anglesey here’s the Half Penny version of the tokens made by Parys. Amazing I’ve never found one of these before and now I’ve found both versions all within a month.

Here’s a nice object, not much known about this yet but I think it might be a belt filling or mount and probably Tudor.

I like this Victorian Brooch, imagine how it would have looked when it was new.

At last my first key! This one looks to be around 400 years old.

I can’t believe my luck, just two weeks after finding my first key I went and found another one. This example is probably a 17th Century casket key.

I currently believe this item to be a shoe buckle from around 1790-1800. The bronze part is very well preserved but sadly, as is often the case, the iron mid section and pin have long since rotted away.

This pewter buckle is in stunning condition when considering it was lost over 300 years ago.

A nice shoe or knee buckle, 1680 to 1720.

Lady of sorrows 18th Century Roman revival copper pendant.

1586 Hans Krauwincel II Rose Orb Jetton. One of the most common types amongst jetton finds.

Another snake belt hood but this time from the 18th Century.

Hans Krauwincel II Rose Orb Jetton.

Another club outing produced this quaint little necklace medallion commemorating the marriage of Prince Albert Edward (Later Edward VII) to Princess Alexandra of Denmark.

A nice silver plated livery button.

My second barrel tap key, 19th Century.

A nice Great War era crest from the Royal Regiment of Canadian Artillery.

It’s rare for a buckle to be complete but on this occasion I was lucky. Date 1680-1720.

My first Medieval Heraldic Pendant. Dates for this one are roughly 1300-1450.

Another shoe or knee buckle from around the beginning of the 18th Century.

An interesting mule token featuring Sir Bevois of Southampton. The die mismatch shows a reverse from North Wales, circa late 18th Century. Obverse (BEVOIS OF SOUTHAMPTON), reverse (NORTH WALES)

A fragment from a Tudor sword belt fitting, 1550-1600.

A small late 17th Century token from Wickham (High Wycombe) in Buckinghamshire. I received an email from a tokens collector who informed me this particular find is one of only three known. Previously I suspected the token to be from Hampshire, so thanks for the update on what turned out to be an extremely rare find.

Fragment of a Tudor period belt fitting.

A shoe or knee buckle complete with pin, 1700-1760.

1586 Hans Krauwincel II Rose Orb Jetton. I’ve had a few of these!

Large Tudor spectacle buckle tinned and decorated with roses on each lobe. Again a great find!

My first Roman fibula brooch.

Almost fully complete medieval buckle.

Tudor spectacle buckle.

Beautiful Charles VI “The Mad” French Jetton. Charles was king of France from 1380 to 1422 and was grandfather to Henry VI of England.
