Object type: BADGE
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation

There is a roughly cylindrical circle that forms the outer border, inside which, and attached to the border with thin stems of lead-alloy, is the figure of an animal, likely a snake. The body of the snake curves to form the outer circular border, and though some of the badge is missing, it appears that the border curves back into the centre and becomes the snake's tail, where it terminates in the snake's mouth. Two thin strips of lead hold the snake's head and …

Medieval brooch made from an English copper-alloy jetton of 13th - 14th century in date. There is a central copper-alloy rivet attaching a length of copper-alloy plate to the back (the obverse of the jetton) which has been recurved at either end, most likely for use as a hooked tag or decorative brooch. The jetton's obverse is hard to discern given that the attachment covers much of the face. There is some indication that a crown is present however, and so a crowned bust facing within a border of pellets is the most likely suggestion. The reverse is a cross Moline with a qua…
