Complete copper-alloy belt and buckle style finger ring of post-medieval date (c. 1600 - 1800 AD). The ring is of simple design: a wide and flat band with a moulded bezel in the shape of a D-shaped buckle. The band has three dots, which presumably represent belt holes. the middle hole is not evenly spaced with the first and last dots. The inner face of the band is flat while the outer face is slightly convex, giving the finger ring a D-shaped section. There is no inscription. The finger ring has a rough brown surface with light green patches of copper-corrosion. It is 18.72 mm in diameter and 1.27mm in thickness. The finger ring weighs 2.39g.

There are many examples of this style of finger ring on the database. Particularly close parallels are NLM-4E9E02 and YORYM-775A7D
