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. Slightly under 7/8” diameter with rounded face. Professionally refurbished with the silver overlay restored, on leather neck cord for contemporary wear. Gift boxed with certificate of authenticity.
