Decorated copper alloy (tombac) solid discoidal flat button with a bevelled edge, measuring 18.4mm diameter and 2.2mm thick. It has quite crudely engraved decoration consisting of a central 14mm diameter 8 pointed star formed of 3 engraved lines. On the reverse is a shallow central domed boss where the attachment loop was formerly affixed - this has broken away but was clearly of iron wire as there are small stubs and rust staining. There are similar buttons in Bailey (9.46, 9.52 etc.) which are given an 18th century date.

An incomplete white metal (possibly silver) probable button or cufflink of the Post Medieval period, dating to the 18th century or later. The object is missing a fragment from its edge.

It has been decorated with a grid of squares each comprising three parallel raised lines. The squares have been arranged so the trios of lines are alternating horizontal and vertically, so that it resembles the weave of a basket. The rever…
