Copper alloy and iron brooch fragment. Cast trumpet brooch, Mackreth type TR 1.b3. A plain trumpet head with a border line bears a protruding spur on top.

The arrangement is probably mirrored below. The lower bow is lost. Suggested date…

Copper alloy brooch. Cast trumpet brooch, Mackreth type TR 1.a3. A plain trumpet head with outer border bears a central cast hinged pin.

A separate drawn wire passes through both the lug and the spring, presumably with the hinged pin mounted on it, to emerge as a top loop with a sleeve crimping it above the heads of the brooch. A tiny [diameter 4.5mm] coiled wire loop, flattened on one side, is itself wrapped around the top loop, perhaps as the first element of a chain. The upper bow na…
