This guide might help. Without the full pin it’s hard to distinguish between Saxon and Roman pins.
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking

If you'd found that in the UK and it was a quarter of the scale I'd say you'd found a Saxon writhen-headed pin. But the size and diameter looks way too big to be a pin. Difficult to tell the age but it could well have a decent amount :thumbsup:

More like purse bar size? Is that iron in the end of it? :Thinking:
