Detecting pair find rare metal dress fastener

A pair of metal detectorists have dug up another treasure from the Derbyshire landscape.

Tim Corser and his friend, Peter Jones, of Hulland Ward, were out in the Derbyshire Dales when they found the small silver dress fastener.

Mr Corser, 66, of Coronation Road, Stanley Village, said: “We didn’t really think we would find much, just odds and sods like Georgian coins.

“It is very small and the workmanship on it is amazing. How they managed to do it without the magnifying glasses and modern tools that we have is incredible.”
