Small iron buckle and plate, length 2.5cm. Plain oval loop and simple tongue. Plate rather tapered. One surviving bronze round headed rivet with silver beaded wire collar; rivet hole for another. Textile remains on back too damaged for determination. Faussett's drawing shows plate longer and triangular, and in his day there were two rivets.
