Sep. pl. 5 (unnumbered group).Eight miscellaneous beads:1 opaque dark green-blue short cylinder1 dark green globular composition (modern)1 grainy pale translucent iridescent blue (modern)1 bone or ivory globular stained with bronze3 small prussian blue translucent globular1 opaque red with opaque yellow striped green median band.Acquisition number and descriptions raise the question whether two of the beads are from Kingston 211. The bead described by SCH as \opaque red with opaque yellow striped green median band\" is the only definite Anglo-Saxon bead. – B.B."
