Gilt bronze. 1" height. Formed as a cluster of oak leaves, probably representing a wreath with single oak leaf center. Roman military commanders were presented with crowns of oak leaves for military parades. The oak stood for strength and was venerated by the military of other cultures as well. That tradition survived the millennia and is preserved today in US military insignia. Professionally refurbished with the gold surface restored for contemporary wear. Gift boxed with a certificate of authenticity. Perfect for a woman who served in the military.
