Even though it is a modern replica it's still a lovely find.I'd have been delighted to have dug that up,whatever its age.I only hope it wasn't planted as a cruel joke.
  Onwards and upwards-keep at it.

ah shame Mark,

But they also had horse shows on that field if I remember, or one near it, so might have been a trophy for winning a class.

Great find all the same Smiley wish I had found it

take care

Weird thing is, there was another very similar sold on ebay 10 days ago from Bridgend.

I wonder where this one came from?

Excellent bit of detective work Ceri. Given that the lighting and angle is different and of course the soil, there appears to be a slight difference in the shoulder boss and neck decoration, but the gold appears to be identical definitely from the same workshop.

Bizarre! Even if it is a modern item, why the hell leave it in a field?

Think someone is having a laugh here.

The ring dots going down the neck are different and also on the Rally find there is a Zig Zag pattern running down the neck. So defo not the same artifact.

I was there and in discussions over its condition, I overheard someone mentioning that there had been burglaries in the area in the past.
Maybe someone crossing the fields dropped it? It looks in too amazing condition too have been underground for more than a few years surely.

I think there may be an Elephant in the room here, lets face it the likelihood is that some idiot has put it there either on the same day or a couple before and not realising the disappointment this type of stupid prank can cause, they have now bottled it and can't admit to doing it, and yes they are almost certainly a member on here.
Those clean bronze areas are bright and shiny and those legs, not a bend in sight.
It happened on one of Avalon's digs last year and on the Corf rally by MLO and a Weekend Wanderers Rally.
