Further details:

Sword overlain by a shield surrounded by a decorative border. While some pilgrim badges were rather crudely made, others, such as this example, showed a high standard of workmanship. The sword with which Becket was martyred was kept as a major relic at Canterbury Cathedral and in this badge it is represented along with a buckler or shield. The original of this badge originally had a coloured backing to highlight the design.

Our copy is available with either red or blue cloth backing; please state required colour when ordering.
