Regular price $145.00 Sale

Silvered bronze, worn in numbers on the surface of the jerkin, provided a measure of protection against sword cuts and was 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. Circular, over 3/4” (0.82”) diameter. The surface is lightly textured and worn from burial. Professionally refurbished with the silver overlay restored, on an 18” Sterling silver neck chain for contemporary wear. Jewelry gift boxed with a certificate of authenticity. Fine proud form.
