Unique ID: YORYM-607909

Object type certainty: Certain
Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation

An incomplete copper-alloy buckle of Post-Medieval date, circa AD 1550 - 1650. The buckle is a double looped oval with moulded decoration. Just over half of the buckle has been lost to worn breaks. Trilobed, trefoil mouldings are present to the surviving loop and bar terminal. The reverse is flat and undecorated and the pin no longer remains.

The metal has a dark green patina and is worn. The buckle is 30.9mm long, 24.5mm wide, 3.3mm thick and weighs 5.3g.

A similar example is illustrated in Whitehead, p.65, no.397 and is dated to circa AD 1550 - 1650.
