An incomplete Lead alloy object of probable Post-Medieval or Modern date, c. AD 1700-1900. The object is C-shaped in plan, with original internal and external edges, but terminating in old breaks at either end. Towards one end the fragment expands in width and tapers in thickness, and is probably almost complete. It is triangular in cross section, with a beveled exterior edge. This face is decorated in low relief, stippled with pellets within two raised borders, the other faces are undecorated.

It is 21.60mm in length (approximating to the diameter of the original item), the central opening is c10.50mm in diameter, and the hoop widens from 5.28mm at one break to 10.51mm at the other. It weighs 3.35g.
