A incomplete cast copper alloy mount of probable Medieval date. Length: 42.11mm; width: 9.83mm and 3.25mm thick. Weight: 5.24g.

The mount is sub-rectangular in plan and appears to be broken at one end. It is flat without decoration (rectangular in section) at the broken end, and thicker and moulded at the complete end. The moulding is of three raised transverse lines near the middle and a rounded terminal. There are still the remains of two rivets; one in the centre and one in the rounded terminal. The mount reacts to a magnet, suggesting the rivets are iron, or that it was mounted to an iron object. The rear face is plain. It has a patchy green patina with some areas of ferrous corrosion.
