An incomplete copper alloy pin of uncertain date. The pin has a plain globular or spherical head and circular sectioned shank which is broken and incomplete. There is no obvious collar between the head and the shank. It is hard to confidently date this object; It is of a simple, plain form and is most likely to date from the Roman to early-medieval period, c. AD 75-850.
