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

An incomplete cast copper-alloy single looped buckle dating to the Medieval period, c. 1250-1400. This example is of Meols type 6, demonstrating a broadly 'D' shaped plano-convex sectioned frame with rounded sides, knopped ends to the offset strap-bar and a thickened edge to the outer frame. The pin and plate are both missing in old damage. Preserved in rather poor condition with an uneven brownish patina, it measures 14.31mm in length, 16.93mm wide at its widest point and 1.86mm thick at the midpoint of the outer frame. It weighs 1.33g.

For parallels, see Egan (2007) p. 91, nos. 511 and 515.
