Found this cross thing quite a while ago on a field that has produced good medieval in the past, i was trying to find out what it was when i found the article below:



Medieval badges Ref Mitchiner p244 939 - 941

 

'A badge for a Knight of the Order of the Holy Sepulchre in bronze and dating somewhere around C13/14th possibly very slightly later . This is a very scarce item and it relates to The Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem being a Catholic chivalric order of Knighthood that traces its roots to Godfrey of Bouillon, principal leader of the First Crusade. According to reliable sources in the Vatican and Jerusalem, it began in historical reality as a mixed clerical and lay confraternity (association) of pilgrims which gradually grew around the most central of the Christian holy places in the Middle East, the Holy Sepulchre or the tomb of Jesus Christ.This would have been a pin for a member of the order , there is a mark on the reverse where the original pin would have been fixed.

Does anybody know if this is one of these? (The above text applies to the 1st pic)


Also had the pipe tamper today, best i have found up to now, i believe Dickens characters were popular but dont recognise this one, it looks to have one of its hands down a place it shouldnt. The ring is copper i think and found on the last RNLI rally near Monmouth.

Good stuff, is that the same FLO that is always going to turn up but due to unforseen circumstances cannot make it again?

It certainly looks the same. A lovely find. You could take it into the nearest Museum and ask for their help.
The pipe tamper top looks like a sailor doing a jig. Nice finds, well done.
