A loop-headed ringed pin, with slightly pitted, stripped surface and golden colour (typical of some beach finds).

Near-complete Late Anglo Saxon stirrup strap mount, probably of 11th century date. The stirrup is unusual with a beast's head protruding downwards from the base of the mount (23mm deep). One other example with a protruding head has been recorded from Stoke Hammond, Bucks (Williams D., 1997, no. 383, p84). Features on the head are now difficult to discern, but the cast decoration appears to depict a snarling snout with four sharp teeth protruding from the underside. The panel is concave with a surviving height of 32.4mm and parallel sides with a width of 32.6mm. The panel is decorated …
