So many diggable signals in those fields.  Yes I think TT would appreciate getting more info. from you about that Anglo Saxon ring pull brooch.
It's a beauty.

I quite enjoyed the dig, particularly the afternoon when the wind died down.
Loads of signals in the stubble field, I had a Geo III halfpenny 1806, 2 viccy halfpennies 1891, 1892, a viccy silver thruppence (my first) and a Geo v halfpenny and a few other burned out coppers.
Loads of other bits the best of which was a nice small bronze bell weight with a hard to make out stamp on the bottom, plus buckles, buttons and a tiny ceramic childs toy cup lying on the surface.
You dig?

I think that's a seal. Hard to tell the size but I've got a similar one in brass with an "L" on the base.

The base is only just over 10mm and the small square mark in the centre would be too small for a seal - it has been suggested to me that lead would have been added to the base up to the desired weight and stamped with VR or GR etc.  Hard to tell really.  Looks like an anchor to me.
