Description: A hair or dress pin with a bulbous head and a small collar immediately below. The shank is incomplete, having broken mid-way along its length.

Dating plain pins of this type is problematic, as generally similar types were used during the Roman and Anglo-Saxon periods. The presence of the small under-head collar, however, tends to suggest an Anglo-Saxon date.
