A large plain circular copper-alloy disc of slightly concavo-convex form. The concave face preserves bands of finishing striations in the fine green patina, a small subcircular corrosion patch at the centre and three irregular but approximately evenly spaced patches of grey-coloured degraded solder around the rim. The form and corrosion products correspond precisely with those of OA.252.110 so it is clear that they were originally together as a composite object.

In the Minutes of the Society of Antiquaries, 3rd June 1813 (p306–11) the hoard is recorded as being exhibited by Samuel Lysons but in the ownership of Mr Henry Day of Compton Road. When Samuel Lysons published Reliquiae Britanniae Romanae II, containing illustrations and a brief discussion of the Stony Stratford hoard in 1817, the hoard is then noted as deposited in the British Museum.
