Finally, I charged the batteries in my camera and here are my finds:









Could anyone tell me more about the clasp, little lead cap, round object with fleur-de -lises, round object with shamrocks (a brooch?) and that 'Glasgow Celebration' badge? I suspect the round thing with fleur-de -lises was originally gilded, as there are some faint traces of gilt (top and slightly to the right on the picture); it might have been hinged as well, as there is a thicker bit on the other side on the edge.
Hoards so far - only two :(

Great shots of the finds! Would agree about the picture hanger. Looks like a little statue bottom under that! Third pic from bottom maybe a bell seal matrix?

Nice finds :)

The Glasgow medal celebrates peace after the First World War.

Well, the lead statue bottom is obvious to me, it's probably some saint. Bell-shaped object is empty inside, so if it is a part of a seal, the matrix must have been lost. Maybe it is a cap of a little bottle?
I also found a bazillion of lead seals, similar to the ones found by the others. Also, some coins I mentioned earlier and a bronze/copper button - they are in an olive oil bath.
Thanks folks for your suggestions.

Well found buddy!

That wee bronze nail is the first picture is nice! I always like to see those!

There is a river nearby and barges after the war would bring all the property from bombed out houses up and spread them into there fields which is why you often find burnt items and furniture knobs with a bit of charred wood still in them or fire damaged coins apart from stubble burning lol.

There's dunny waste too lol so we could be digging in old poop  ;D

Interesting story, so that's where all this rubbish came from :)
Any idea how old is the hand-made nail?
