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 oval form, 1 ¼” width of thick proud section.. Professionally refurbished with the silver overlay restored, on a Sterling silver neck chain for contemporary wear. Gift boxed with a certificate of authenticity.
