Circular bronze, 7/8” diameter with delicately ribbed or roped pattern overall including the inside, all particularly well preserved and unworn. Worn in numbers on the surface of the jerkin, these small metal brooches provided a measure of protection against sword cuts and, in fact, were a form of armor. See current Public Television programming for documentation of these in action. As protectors, they also held spiritual significance for the warrior. Professionally refurbished with the 24karat gold overlay restored and suspended from a premium polished leather neck cord with gilt closure. Jewelry gift boxed with certificate of authenticity.
