"When a cooking or storage pot develop a hole, molten lead would be poured onto it to form a plug - hence the indent.

These are therefore not likely to be 'casual loss' material which could be found in almost any field simply as a result of people wandering across them over hundreds of years.
"

Elizabeth 1st 1594 silver coin.
