Would anyone know the age of this riding spur, probably a child's, as it is only 70mm across at the opening?

Nice to see a whole one as most have big bits missing. Without a side view it’s hard to be sure on date but looks post medieval. The PAS guide for spurs can be found here and might help in confirming and/ or narrowing the date further.
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking

Nice find, probably 17/18th C. :thumbsup:
Good things come to those who wait.

Most of the finds on the farm I have been detecting, have been Georgian, including a George fourth gold sovereign.
Although I have found a Charles first half groat and a hammered coin that was made into a love token.
So 17/18th century is probably about right.
Thanks everyone for your help.
