Description: A cast two-piece button, originally with an embedded looped wire shank (now missing); biconvex or sub-spherical; solid; polished tinned surface.

Buttons of this type are recorded in MoL Dress Accessories (Nos. 1384-1395) from ceramic phases 8-12 (1230-1450). They are usually made of bronze with a high-tin content. Brian Read (see References below) comments: "These buttons frequently have a high tin content or a polished tin coating, both of which may create an appearance of silver."

Description: A cast one-piece lead-alloy button with integral shank; circular; flat; (?) a crowned bust* within a beaded border; simple circular-section U-shaped loop; mould joint-line on back.

* The majority of the design is indistinct, but a Plantagenet-style open crown is apparent at the top, and the vague outline of a facing bust can be discerned. It appears to copy the crowned facing bust used on the silver coinage of the 14th and 15th century.

Found on the same site as UKDFD 10504 and UKDFD 21329.
