Are you sure it's that old? It sure looks finely made for something of that age. From what metal is it made?

We dont have permission to clean things older than 1537 or coins older than 1650 AD here in Norway, because the museum claims the right of the findings.
I knew that.:thumbsup: Congrats on doing the honest thing.

Over here 6th C is the start of our Saxon Migration period, does this fall into the 'Saxon' bracket or is it locally made?

In Norway we call this the vendel period (550-800), Migration period in Norway is 375-550. These conical fibulas are found in whole Norway, but most of them come from Inlands in Norway were i live. Conical fibula’s/broochs was top fashion for women in a short period. 550-600 AD. Sorry if my English isn’t the best!
