Gilt bronze, just under 7/8” diameter. Rounded front and back forming a ridge on the edge. Textured from burial. Worn in numbers, these were decorative as well as serving as a measure of protection from sword blows. See multiple images for a similar brooch with a sword cut shown for reference only. Professionally refurbished with the 24k gold overlay restored. On modern polished leather neck cord for contemporary wear. Gift boxed with a certificate of authenticity.
