5-13 – nine bronze belt mounts, including: a buckle with a cruciform tongue and a fragment of a buckle plate, four openwork belt fittings, four lancet-shaped strap-ends;
14 – a single small bronze spur with hooks for attaching to a shoe;
15 – a complete solid brooch.

A chance find made by Tomasz Zajączkowski in 2013. The objects were discovered in the close proximity. Their concentration and chronology suggest that at least some of them came from a destroyed grave. Its inventory is typical of the Olsztyn Group societies.
