A complete post-Medieval cast-copper-alloy double-looped buckle (c. 1550-c. 1650 AD).

The buckle is convex at the front and flat at the rear and each loop is similar. Each loop is oval-shaped and has four lobed knops, one at each corner as well as a smaller one at each end of the bar. The insides of the loop at the front are bevelled. The bar is triangular in cross-section, flat at the rear. A complete iron pin is corroded and fused to the frame.

This buckle frame has traces of a dark green patina and also patches of a black substance.

A similar buckle has been published and dated c. 1550-1650 (Whitehead 1996: 63, ref: 382).
