Disk; ring with projecting inner edge; cream-colored. (Calcified; old and new nicks and worn spots; deposits; old break on inner flange; mud [?] on surface.)
(Jenny F. So, Jade Project Database, entered March 24, 2009) Opaque chalky white (altered) with soil incrustations. Thin grinding, uneven finish of edges, and uneven height of collar, narrow disk ("flange") vs. hole suggest primitive quality. May be one of the earliest in collection.
