Full description

February-March 1999. Metal-detecting.
1 Middle Saxon complete pin, of lovely green bronze. The head is a cube with the corners cut off. The top has an engraved cross and the four lozens form side faces each have engraved borders with crossing corners (like a hash sign #). The shaft is circular in section and at the top has two transverse grooves (imitating a collar). Below this it tapers and bends (rather wiggly bends - original?). Around 8th - 9th century.
