An incomplete double looped buckle frame, dating to the Post Medieval period.There is a protruding lobed knop at the centre of the outer edge of the extant elongated D-shaped loop. There is also a moulded knop at each end of the pin bar. The knop on the outer edge is grooved to act as a pin rest. The pin is cast, simply looped round to attach it and tapers to a point at the other end. The frame is D- shaped, with the middle protruding to a point. The surface is corroded and has a brown and grey patina. A similar example can be found illustrated in Whitehead (1996, 62; ref 373) though it lacks the knops to the pin bar.

It is 26.3 mm long, 22.7 mm wide, 2.5 mm thick and 5.1 grams.
