Mayadigger:
Ave!

Thanks Joe!

Any particular date?

n0x:
13th century, central Europe. It's one of the most popular types for reenactment of the time. There are almost no images of real pieces on the internet.

I am not sure whether your picture shows an ancient piece. Some details of the patina look strange to me.

Mayadigger:
Ave n0x!

Thanks!  +++

The brooch is 100% authentic.

Best,

Kevin
