Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation

An incomplete cast copper alloy hooked tag of post-medieval date. The hooked tag is of Reads Class E, Type 3 being circular in plan. The main plate is circular with a moulded relief central domed boss bearing a classical style human facing mask within two concentric circles. The area between the circles is filled with pellets and the outer border is beaded. A ridged collar is present at the juncture of the plate and hook and a rectangular loop projects from the upper edge. The tip of the hook has been lost to a worn break and the reverse is undecorated and concave.
The metal has a dark blackish-green patina and is worn. The hooked tag is 31mm long, 17.7mm wide, 3.3mm thick and weighs 2.3g.
A similar example is illustrated in Read, p.92, no.322 and is dated to the early post-medieval period.
