The portion of the buckle which remains is the apex of the loop and some of the sides. Egan and Pritchard illustrates similar frame(No. 421), but this is not decorated with a face. The face is possibly that of a man with a beard, but otheriwse there is no headwear or clothing visible. The London example is dated to the 14th century. It is made from cast copper alloy.

The loop which protrudes from either side of the neck is triangular in section. Each terminal of the loop is broken, but not recently. The reverse of the frame is flat and flush with the protruding head.

The object has a dark green shiny patina. It measures 21.6mm long, 19mm wide and weighs 1.88g.
