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 over 1" diameter low rounded faces and a sharp edge rim. Textured from burial. Professionally refurbished with the silver overlay restored, on a Sterling silver neck chain for contemporary wear. Jewelry ift boxed with a certificate of authenticity. $9.95 shipping. 5 day return policy.
