A loop-headed ringed pin, with slightly pitted, stripped surface and golden colour (typical of some beach finds). The ring has a dark corrosion layer on the surface, remnants of which also survive on the shaft. The ring is of 'fixed' type, with a constriction where it fits through the loop head of the pin; the pin can therefore swing, but not move freely around the ring. The ring is of lozenge cross-section, and is decorated with five groups of transverse incised lines. The pin has a raised transverse moulding at the junction of the loop head with the shaft. The shaft changes in cross…

Cast copper alloy strap end of Early Medieval date, probably dating to the Anglo-Saxon period and of 9th to 10th century date. The strap end is of slightly unusual form and does not easily fit into Thomas' classification.

The strap end tapers to its terminal with converging sides, which expand at the terminal. On either side, below the strap slot are rounded knops.
