A silver pendant, probably of recent date. The pendant is oval with a rounded face and a flat back with multiple file marks. On the rounded face is a group of twelve unevenly drilled pits arranged into the form of a horseshoe. A single drilled aperture is sited at the opening of the horseshoe.

The pendant gives the impression of its being a home made item.
