Part of an Annular Brooch

Had this in my junk from the other day, but apparantly its part of a 13th C Annular Brooch, just illustrates the point that you should always remove your junk and examine it properly before discarding

Superb - wish my junk was that intersting!  Apparently Barrs bottle tops with "10p" on them are not historically significant!   ;)

Nice find.  :)

I wonder if you found a few hundred of the Barrs tops would it be classed as a hoard  :D

Nice recovery Adrian.   ;)  Like spectra said, I've had junk in my box, which after another set of eyes looked at, turned out to be some good finds.

yeah Eric, I have boxes full of UFO's and every now and again i go through them again, sometimes things that were unrecognisable a month ago can suddenly become an object of interest :)
