BUCKLE

Unique ID: HAMP-D930D1

Object type certainty: Certain
Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation

A slightly corroded single-looped sub-rectangular buckle of post-medieval date. The strap bar is narrowed and recessed; the pin is missing. The buckle is bevelled externally on its upper face and internally on the lower. The outer edge is slightly incurved and features a central, projecting ovoid knop defined on either side by diagonal incisions. Some of the underlying metal shows through the mainly brown patina in places. There is off-white and light-green corrosion product on the lower surface in particular. Around the pin bar is orange corrosion product suggesting that the pin may have been of iron. A smaller example can be found illustrated in Whitehead (1996, 28; ref. 145), although Whitehead only offers a wide date range.
