Circular bronze, just over 1” diameter.  Heavy section, the front, back and outside ridged. The inside with rounded surface. The surface textured from burial. Professionally conserved and the pure silve surface restored. On a modern black leather neck cord with gilt chain closure, gift boxed with a certificate of authenticity. 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. Most are plain distinguishing this one for its modeled form. Delicate form and proportions. Gift boxed with certificate of authenticity.
