Record ID: SWYOR-6B3085
Object type: COIN
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Wakefield
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A silver Post Medieval coin; a Venetian Soldino of Doge Leonardo Loredano (AD 1501 - 1521). The coin has been crudely pierced leaving a rectangular hole punched from the obverse. The hole avoids both the figure of Christ and the legend on the reverse, but obliterates the figure of St Mark on the obverse. The hole does not appear to be for suspension as neither face would hang in the correct orientation. The act of punching the hole has pushed the displaced metal to the back of the coin where it sticks out, so it does not seem to have been nailed to a larger object. The coin has a diam…

Object type: BUCKLE
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Wakefield
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A cast copper alloy buckle frame of post-medieval date, about AD 1660 - 1720. The buckle is a double looped sub-rectangular shoe buckle with rounded edges and slight internal swellings where the pin would sit. The separate central spindle is iron. The pin is missing, and the chape tapers from the bar, has a narrow waist and then a rounded end. The button is mssing, but the hole is filled with corrosion. The buckle is curved in profile, probably suggesting a function as a shoe buckle. Whitehead (1996, page 97, nos 600-601) suggests a date of 1660-1720 for the first such buckles. The bu…

Object type: MUSKET BALL
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A lead alloy musket ball of Post-Medieval date, AD 1600 - 1800. The casting seam is not visible. There is a faint band of set-up caused by the ball being squeezed aginst the inside of the muzzle by the gasses during firing. A long concave dent may be impact damage. Other small dimples and dents are probably post-depositional. The ball has a light, yellowish-grey patina. It is 14.9mm in diameter and weighs 17.73g. The weight suggests that this ball was fired from a Carbine, a short firearm used mainly by cavalry (Harding (2012) Lead Shot of the English Civil War: a Radical Study).
