Pins were used in huge quantities in medieval dress and although the vast majority were of very simple design, a few more decorative versions do survive. The original on which this replica is based was found in London, and although undated it is felt to be similar in the design to 14th and 15th century coins to date it to this period.
The shaft is brass while the Kings Head is made from lead free pewter.
