Manton Round Barrow (Round Barrow(s)) by wysefool Amber gold-bound disc. Enalrged detail. Actual size 1inch (2.5cms) approx.

As a link from this site says. Did they have a magnifying glass? The level of detail (the holes are 1mm) and the perfection of the circular indents (inlaid with gold leaf), must have taken a craftsman (or woman, should that be Craftsperson in the PC world?).
