An almost complete lead-alloy discoidal domed (measuring 10.64mm in thickness) button, dating to the period 1400-1600. It is circular in plan, 22.35mm in diameter, and has traces of a circular knop in the centre with curving blades around. The edge is a little damaged. From knop to the end of the loop, it measures 17.47mm. The loop measures 8.55mm in diameter. In total, this button weighs 2.73g.

Read (2010, reprint of 2005) illustrates a similar button on page 38, no.130. A late 15th/ 16th century date is suggested for this example.
