Regular price $155.00 Sale

Doubly rare for its exceptional size, 11 ¼. 6.5mm (1/4”) width with a low rounded face. Mottled red/brown patina with remnants of silver plate and a mark to the inside. Vikings were expert metallurgists. The use of pure copper is rare and suggests a supernatural significance as alloys were much more durable. Gift boxed with certificate of authenticity. Vikings exchanged rings on the pommel of the groom’s sword
