Regular price $285.00 Sale

Just under 1 ¾” width (1.70”) width, of very heavy section flaring from the middle to the expanded ends. Original cross pin. Worn in numbers on the leather war jerkin, at an ounce each, a few pounds could be added providing significant protection against sword blows. See current Public Broadcasting for Vikings wearing a protective brooch. Surface texture from burial and the silver surface renewed. Mounted with an 18” modern sterling silver mounted polished leather neck cord for modern wear. Jewelry gift boxed with a certificate of authenticity. The heaviest of these that we have seen and when worn in multiples, indicative of a warrior of substantial stature.
