A silver 15th century disc, called a vervel, has been confirmed as treasure following an inquest at Dunstable Coroner's Court.
The inquest heard that a medieval silver buckle was found in Postwick, a silver hawking vervel in Great Fransham and an Anglo-Saxon pyramidal mount on Happisburgh beach, all by separate detectors.
Coroner David Morris said that he would register the vervel as treasure with the British Museum.
