Hi guys I had a few hours spare this week so I managed a couple of short trips. This came up on the first search.

Plate brooch of the 2nd-3rd century, enamelled and although the centre is missing its stone it has still got the pin attached in place which for these is unusual and very welcome........ Wink

You are very lucky with your land, it seems very forgiving, I find Victorian stuff in poorer condition, that very nice find would make my season. 👍

Nice one - I had a short time about 5 years ago where I found a number of plate brooches - the last one was like this (again with missing central stone), but gilded instead of enamelled. I keep asking the farmer if he'll plough the field, but he hasn't done yet Smiley
