found today down the vale on the swansea rally by GRIFFMEISTER amazing find , made of what looks like bronze with gold looking guilding all over and very heavy , a truely superb item well done mark , and he's only been detecting 2 months  Shocked Shocked

maybe roman , celtic any ideas anyone
It's Roman, and they normally have a Rider on them.
I know of one which came up in Bedfordshire and years later he found the Rider.
Nice find, well saved!!

Hi Hog - the Roman ones look different mate and are much smaller from the examples I have seen and held. You maybe right, but I think the scale and design is too different.

A quality find whatever it turns out to be.

I`d love it to be genuine for the finders sake.
 However sorry to pi$$ on the finders parade but ,I`ve seen  modern day Brass fakes with the verdigris looking just like that (patchy)and it makes me wonder.  Huh Good luck on the outcome anyway And I sincerely hope it proves genuine. The  FLO should verify if it is or not..
