A copper alloy probable bracelet terminal. The terminal is circular in section with a diameter at the break of 5.02mm, and at the terminal of 10.85mm. There is a notched collar between grooves and the flat end has silver plating. The surface patination is dark brown and active bronze disease is present where the surface is not present.


The terminal is not closely diagnostic, but the surface patina is suggestive of a later Iron Age date.
