Description

A fragment of copper-alloy that may have been a strap-end. At what would have formed the attachment end it is broken. At the other end is a rounded terminal. There are a series of transverse bands as decoration. It is pierced three times in a line; once near the terminal and twice near to where it is broken. It may be a crude strap-end or possibly a mount of some form.
