A probable cast copper alloy buckle of post-medieval date. The surviving part of the frame measures 67.3mm by 42mm by 6.2mm and weighs 23.9g. It is not clear whether the buckle would have been a single or double loop variety, and what the overall shape would have been (it was most likely assymetrical), but the surviving part is curvilinear with a circular element in the centre of the side. This has a projecting external knop and a notch for the pin on the inside. The front of the buckle is convex and the back is concave.
