An incomplete cast copper alloy double looped buckle c.1350-1650. With just over half of the buckle remaining (29.2mm length and 27.5mm wide) the frame is shallow D-shaped in cross section being rounded on the top and flat on the reverse and waisted adjacent to the narrowed strap bar that has rust traces, indicating an iron pin. The remaining loop is also D-shaped and has a pin notch on the front edge probably more due to wear than design. Thickness 2.3mm and weight 4.2g.
