A near complete copper-alloy late Iron Age Nauheim derivative (La Tene III) brooch dating to AD 10-100.

Discussion: At the top of the brooch, the pin and two of the curls of the spring remain which extend into the bow of the brooch. At the foot of the brooch, the bow extends back to form the catchplate. The bow of the brooch is undecorated but narrows towards the catchplate. The brooch has a dark brown patination. The pin is bent away from the bow and the spring and part of the catchplate is missing but apart from that remains in good condition.

Measurements: 43.88mm long, 9.63mm wide, 17.46mm high (bow 0.52mm thick) and 1.47g in weight.

Discussion: This brooch fits a group of varied brooches of Nauheim derivative (La Tene III) dating to the very late Iron Age a number are illustrated by Hattatt 2000, 290-291) and a number such as IOW-CCFD5A have been reported to the PAS.
