Metal Detector Find (2017)

NH 89 54 An unusual, notably short pin (L 68mm) with the head split to form two out-turned coils was found during metal detecting and claimed as Treasure Trove (TT 18/17). It has been suggested it may be early medieval, but the outturning of the coils is atypical and it is likely to be more recent.
