Silver hooked tag with circular plate, decorated with a symmetrical pattern of eight pointed hollow segments that form a circle against a hollowed background. The latter keyed for niello decoration, which is now missing. Originally, there were two attachment lugs, the right one and part of the round plate are missing, the left one is broken. The tip of the hook is now separate. The back of the round plate is very scratched.
