Abstract: A complete two-dimensional local field $ K$ of mixed characteristic with finite second residue field is considered. It is shown that the rank of the quotient $ U(1)K_2^{\mathrm{top}}K/T_K$, where $ T_K$ is the closure of the torsion subgroup, is equal to the degree of the constant subfield of $ K$ over $ \mathbb{Q}_p$. Also, a basis of this quotient is constructed in the case where there exists a standard field $ L$ containing $ K$ such that $ L/K$ is an unramified extension.
