PIN

Unique ID: YORYM-C486D4

Object type certainty: Certain
Workflow status: Published Find published

A cast copper alloy pin, probably dating to the middle Anglo-Saxon period (AD 720 – 850). The pin has a flattened biconical head (globular), which has been crudely multi-facetted. The shaft is long and tapering from the conical lower part of the pin head. The head is undecorated. The shaft is bent and broken. There is a small narrow collar around the shaft, at the junction between the shaft and the head. The metal is a mid greyish-green colour and the original patina survives as a smooth, glossy surface – but it is also quite pitted.
