A copper-alloy buckle tongue (pin) of the Anglo-Saxon period. It is a rectangular variant of the more usual shield-shaped and violin-shaped types (e.g. UKDFD 35190). The front of the tongue is decorated with a moulded design, consisting of a lozenge with a central dot, all within a lozenge-shaped frame. At the pin end, there is a transverse bar with a row of dots in sunken relief, and at the opposite end a plain transverse bar. The pin is tapered and has a slight undercut, apparently decorated with ribbing, at its broader end. The back of the tongue has a single integral rivet for attachment to the buckle plate.
