Product Name: Shield-Boss
- Black field with White Detailing depicting a multitude of Romanesque shapes and designs across its surface
- square steel plate with rounded central boss bubble
This decorative shield boss is a raised section, often made of metal, at the center of the shield with the purpose of deflecting blows away from the center of the shield.
This has an Imperium Ancient Armory rating of: "Authenticity Rating:9. This is an excellent facsimile of the decorative shield boss found in England in the Tyne River. In our opinion, however, the curvature of the boss might be deeper in order to be more historically accurate."
