Thread: Roman Metal Working Site - Day 7 - Finished - 16th/17th C SILVER SPUR & BUCKLE!!!

    Roman Metal Working Site - Day 7 - Finished - 16th/17th C SILVER SPUR & BUCKLE!!!

    It was a fairly normal day other than the strong cold wind. We were finishing off the Roman Metal Working Site finding 15 scrappies & bits..
    The gridding took us just short of 4 hours, so we decided to do a scouting mission in the next field. It's a monster field & I wanted to check the bottom right corner, so I was off, at pace. Cru'dad left behind, crossed the track-way onto the new field & a few paces in got a large junk signal. After putting it in his pouch thinking it was a chrome plated Spur (we have never heard of solid silver ones!), he moved on a couple of paces & got the buckle. At this point, knowing the buckle was silver he GPSed it & then tried to catch me up.
    Just less than 6 hours total hunt;

    16 Scrappies
    Broken Spec. Buckle
    Broken Roman Nail Cleaner
    Roman Oval Plate Brooch
    Ancient Bronze Bead
    1817 Sixpence - I thought I had the best find
    Cauldron Foot
    Medieval Iron Spur - My best effort
    Livery Button & Hunts Button (Dog's head)

    Here is the research on our latest TREASURE find;
    https://finds.org.uk/database/artefa...cord/id/291701
    https://finds.org.uk/database/artefa...type/artefacts

    I can't find a match for the buckle & there are similar 16th C ones as well as 17th C, so I will await the verdict, although the above has lots of 'discussion points'.

    That spur and matching buckle are spectacular finds. I'd be doing back flips.

    I have never heard of a silver spur either. That is really cool. It looks similar in shape to some english riding spurs I have. Nice hunt Crusader.

    Amazing find!

    Have found similar buckles on a pair of hallmarked silver spurs dated to 1729:

    Spur terminals and buckle attachments are different though.

    Interesting.
    Similar but as you say different in a number of areas. I have no idea of the age, but if they were 1729, they should not record it as treasure, so watch this space!

    Incredible find! I could see the asymmetrical being solid silver, but the spur frame itself being solid is unheard of....
