Circular, silvered bronze, with rounded face and flat back.  Just under 7/8” diameter. The edge is indented for the cross pin. Worn in numbers on the surface of the jerkin, to provide 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.  The surface textured and worn from burial. Professionally refurbished with the silver overlay restored, on a Sterling silver 18 neck chain for contemporary wear. Jewelry gift boxed with a certificate of authenticity. Fine proud form.
