Seller's Note/ By the turn of the 5th Century, dragon buckles had devolved until the dragon shape was barely discernable. Although most details had been lost on the dragon heads, the shape of their jaws grasping the loop is still clear. Such buckles are exclusively from the 5th Century.
Rare in this condition and the first of this type presented on NRC.
