BUCKLE

Unique ID: HAMP-9E5467

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

A fragment from a small cast copper-alloy double-looped buckle of medieval to post-medieval date. Only one loop survives: it is sub-pentagonal in form and has a neatly serrated outer edge, with seven points. The loops are shallowly bevelled externally on the upper surface; the lower face is flat and plain. The loops angle in towards the pin bar. The other loop is missing beyond the pin bar; the pin is missing too.

Buckles with outer edges treated in this way can be found illustrated in Whitehead (1996, 60; particularly ref. 356). Here they are dated from AD c. 1450 to 1600. The buckle has corroded to a red/brown colour with areas of off-white and green corrosion product.
