Further details:

This simple badge may have been worn to proclaim the wearer's skill with the crossbow. Alternatively, the crossbow was used symbolically to proclaim the superiority of the human mind over brute strength, and as such was a popular design for jewels. The original of this badge was cast with a sewing loop on the back rather than the usual pin; we have followed this with our replica, as well as a modern pin.


Period: 1400 - 1500 AD
