Bronze, just under 1 3/4” diameter of slightly domed form. Broadband with line borders flanking a series of radiant sun motifs, probably representing Sol the sun deity. Slotted for the captive cross pin. Worn in multiples attached to leather or heavy wool jerkins, this example is easily capable of absorbing a sword blow without failure. Large iconic representative of these protective dress accessories. Professionally refurbished with the pure silver surface restored and suspended from a Sterling silver neck chain for modern wear. Gift boxed with certificate of authenticity.
