BERK-27921C BUCKLE POST MEDIEVAL
A complete copper alloy double looped 'spectacle' buckle dating to the early post-medieval perio, c. AD 1500-1650. The buckle has an oval frame with prominant moulded pin rests on the outer edge of each loop. A thin recess is present on one of the rests, the other is missing this element. The pin is a simple bar of copper alloy, hannered flat and looped around the central pin bar, rounded and tapered towards the end. The reverse of the buckle's frame is slightly recessed. Similar buckles are illustrated in Whitehead (2003:61) and these are dated from c. AD 1550-1650. A similar date is suggested for this example.
