Copper alloy binding from corner of the shield and the clamp on the end of the curved edge. The binding has a straight and a concave length meeting at a globular knob. The knob is hollow and seems to have been worked from sheet, not cast. The curved end is unbroken and terminates halfway under the clamp. The end of the straight length is slightly angled and not obviously unbroken, but when it was excavated it was within clamp 1990,0102.13.
