Lot 0014 Details

Description
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. About 7/8” diameter with a rounded face, ridged edge, and flat back. Original cross pin intact. Professionally refurbished with the silver overlay restored, on a Sterling silver neck chain for contemporary wear. Gift boxed with a certificate of authenticity.
