Woolley's Field Notes: "Silver plaque in two parts. [A] A circular plaque diam 9mm, part of the edge broken away; in center, raised electrum boss surrounded by six silver bosses; round them a border of two double raised concentric bands with fine radial lines between; folded over this and sticking to it when found was a second piece of silver with copper backing apparently broken off from where the edge of the circle is missing; the shape of the whole object would look like an elaborate buckle ths [drawing]. [B] A copper pin 75mm long was corroded on the back (as were many beads [C]) but need not belong to it. The three are catalogd under the same number. "
