A complete medieval cast copper alloy single looped buckle, dating to c. AD1250 - 1400. The frame is D-shaped in plan, the outer edge expanding to a point with a slight notch to form the pin rest. The bar is flanked by knops. A simple copper alloy sheet pin survives in situ, with the sheet rolled to form the point.

It is 18.18mm in length, 23.55mm in width and weighs 3.69g.

cf. Meols type 3, for which no dated comparanda was known (Griffiths, Philpott and Egan 2007), based on its general form a 13th-14th century date range can be suggested.

Class: Meols type 3
