Absolutely stunning hammered silver alloy (untested) cloak pin. The primary metal is silver but the alloy also contains also small quantities copper. Pins of this type were used in Chimú culture for securing garments, or as hair pins. Probably from a mummy bundle or accoutrement in a shaman tomb. A fine patina envelops in layers deep dark greyish hues. Excellent condition. Intact. Age-related wear. Dirt, dust and corrosion. Size approx. 12,8cm x 0,4cm x 0,2cm.
