A perfect day spent walking in the sun produced these lovely items… no hammered, but happy to save these. Not sure if that’s a coat of arms on the metal pendant? And more of the little lead pieces... we now have 7 of them. Any IDs as ever much appreciated. x

The ovate lead items are fired round balls,you may know already,if so,no biggie.You can see rifling marks on them.They look a lot like fired pistol balls.When loading them,the process often shaved the sides so they appear ovate like that. I,m not familiar with British black powder revolvers so don,t have any guess as to what they were fired from.

Interesting, that’s what we thought when we saw the grooves/marks on them. Thank you for confirming x

The pendant is most likely to be a horse pendant. We find quite a few over here and that seems to be the general consensus. Good find well done.

Hi, yeap a good find, but no general consensus needed, as there is no debate that these might be something else. They have proved they go on the side of the horses head, circa 14th C.
