13thC vessica seal matrix

It's our old friend CREDE MICHI -- "believe me" -- i.e. you can believe what is written beneath this seal as being genuine. The lettering is not perfect however! I'd transcribe CREDE [M]IChI. -- possible that the letter before the final C is meant to be MI ligatured, but if so, it's been bungled!

Keep 'em coming -- and, ideally, nice easy ones like this!

Malcolm

As you say, it's a standard Gallo-Belgic D type from the early Gallic War period.  I think the clue to its very low weight probably lies in the very irregular flan, which suggests that it was either struck on an abnormal, mis-shapen blank, not intended for use, or that it has been clipped in antiquity to illegally siphon off gold, much as medieval silver was clipped.  Difficult to be sure but clipping is more likely,

All the best

It’s not possible to tell you with 100%  certainty which of the Constantine clan has his portrait on this one, but I can tell you a good bit about it and make an educated guess about the person. As for that, given the position of the very few legible letters on the obverse and the clear officina letter on the reverse, I think it is probably Constans, Caesar.
The denomination is centenionalis and the reverse type is GLORIA EXERCITVS with two soldiers flanking two legionary standards. These were struck with 2 standards from 330-335, in 335, the weight standard was reduced slightly and the number of standards reduced to one.
The exergual mint mark, however – more often the illegible part of otherwise clear reverses - is clearly the mint mark for Rome. This is pretty clearly “R star P” meaning it’s from the first (Primus) officina or workshop of the mint at Rome.
If it’s what I believe it to be, it would be RIC VII Rome 367 if it’s Constans, Caesar (also a chance it’s Constantine I and if so, it would be 363.) Only Constantine I and Constans, Caesar  are listed as striking in officina P for this (2-standard) issue and Constans, Caesars’ pieces are supposed to be a lot more common than Constantine’s in this issue.

Henry VIII legend

Toward the end of Henry VIII's reign, the silver was progressively debased from 9oz.2dwt. (.758) in 1544, through 6oz.2dwt (.508) in 1545, to 4oz.2dwt. (.342) in 1546. At this last standard, the blanched silver surface of the coins soon wore away to reveal the copper alloy beneath which earned for Henry the nickname 'Old Coppernose'.

Without being able to read any more letters than are legible on this, I would suggest that it might be a billon antoninianus of Probus or one of the other late 3rd century Illyrian emperors, like this – I couldn’t find one on line with the control letter on the right, but otherwise, it seems to be a potential match.
Almost all the Illyrian emperors had Minerva reverses with either COMES AVG or PAX AVG legends on the reverses and a control letter in the left field.

The Classic Crescent Triad quarter, ABC 2825 var., is another matter entirely.  It's from dies 50/71, my no. 592, and is only the second known coin to read CAM inside a fine pellet border; it's the border that's the distinguishing feature here, along with the complex base of the corn ear (compare the base of DK 591, the standard ABC 2825 type).  It's the last known quarter issue struck by Cunobelinus, which probably accounts for its rarity.

HARNESS FITTING

 

Complete late Early Medieval (Anglo-Saxon) to early Medieval cast copper alloy harness fitting. This is an Anglo-Scandinavian design and dates from circa AD 1000 to 1150.

This artefact is a strap distributor, formed of a central lozengeform section with a domed circular boss. The reverse of the boss is slightly hollow. There is a projecting arm from each corner of the lozenge; the arms are sub-rectangular with concave sides. Each arm terminates in an incomplete loop which would have secured leather straps.

I’m afraid you’ll need to reveal a bit more here before I have any real chance to ID it. I have a short list of things the reverse might have been, but not enough specific detail to tell if it’s a leaping dog or horse – or a galley rowing along – or a crocodile – or something else altogether. I’m not sure what you see on the obverse, but that is also too unclear to be accurately oriented.
If you get an “after” picture when it’s been cleaned, at least somewhat, I’ll be glad to have another stab at it.

It's to the  Preventive Water Guard - established in 1809. The coast of Britain was divided into three divisions, Carlisle to Landsend, Landsend to North Foreland and North Foreland to Berwick. Naval Officers with the title of Inspecting Captains were appointed to each division and given command of a small fleet. In 1816 the Preventive Water Guard was made responsible to the treasury. The Preventive Water Guard operated in coastal waters to tackle smugglers who evaded revenue cruisers. If the weather was rough, they operated from the shore. All recruitment was from demobilised Royal Navy sailors.

Dutch colonial New York Penny

Utrecht 1684 Dutch Colonial New York Penny This copper " Duit " coin was minted over 200 years ago and is similar to the ones used by the Dutch in the era when they bought the island of Manhattan (present-day New York City) for the equivalent of $24 in Dutch coins. These were brought to the colonies by the Dutch when they settled in New Amsterdam , now New York. Because of that these are called New York pennies.

Weird tiny debased gold coin - Celtic ?? sent to Fitzswilliam museum for their views

0.88g,9.07mm

CCI 19.1426 - base AV ?blank

The side with the lines resembles the 'design' on Gallo-Belgic Bb Crossed Lines quarters, but the weight is barely half what it should be and it looks much too base.

It's most likely to be a blank for an unknown, possible Iron Age, type, or perhaps an early Saxon issue if the weight and fineness corresponds to any of them.

All best
