I'm always jealous of people who find strap ends 'cos I've never found one. But looking through a box of old finds the other day I came across this buckle with an extended rear end which presumably was riveted to a leather strap. The whole thing is about 2cm long

So would the experts on the site categorize this as a strap end or just a long buckle?

I hope it's the latter 'cos it would break my duck.  Grin

I'd say it was a strap end but I'm no expert.

It's a buckle with integral plate. Dates 1250-1400. A nice find.

Thanks for your expert opinion, Peter. I'm still waiting for my first strap end then...  Sad

I love early buckles. I wouldn't mind finding something similar.
