dating of these brooches

(1/1)

Posedonus44:
Hello everybody.
Please help me with dating of these brooches. Thank.

SC:
I have no idea but my guess would be early 21st century AD.

There is nothing like them in any reference I own or have looked at regarding ancient brooches (see my earlier thread or my wikipedia article on fibula for a partial bibliography) nor have I ever seen anything like them in a museum.

The pin is extremely thick compared to most genuine surviving pins that you see and the simple flat pin catch placed perpendicular to the pin is a hallmark of recent Bulgarian fakes.
