Earliest form with scalloped edge formed by the nail holes. See Ashmolian Museum collection for similar examples. Good form 4" o.a. and sized for an Icelandic pony, the Viking mount. Six nail holes with one partial nail remaining. Shoes of this form were fastened with large protruding head nails and thus the horse stood on the nails. At that time, horses were shod for battle only, not for agricultural purposes.
