I am so JEALOUS, the most beautiful thing I have ever seen come out of the ground. Frankish or Merovingian brooch from the Dark ages, almost certainly a chieftain's. Value? Easily a five figure number I would think.

Kaolinwasher, FAKE??? I think not. I have been hunting for ancient coins and artifacts throughout Europe since 1995, this is the real deal Sir.

Almost certain its the real deal,its a thing of beauty for sure,we have similar items like that over here in the UK,possible from a grave or possibly part of a larger hoard that may be even deeper,it certainly was for someoen like a chieftan or some other high ranking person.

Lovely find,value of something like that is in the beauty and the history behind it,not in monetary value.



Just dig it and put your mind at rest !!
