Plain Gorget
We have limited quantities of these Plain Brass and Nickel Gorgets.  Each measures about 5" across and 2.75" at the widest point.  These Gorgets come with pre-drilled holes for suspension cord, lacing, etc.  You will find them somewhat heavier than some of our other Gorgets.
Metal Gorgets were originally worn by European military officers in the 18th century. In North America, Europeans gave gorgets to Native American leaders as trade goods. Over time, Metal Gorgets became prized trade items and part of Native American Regalia in the Eastern United States.  You will find these Gorgets appropriate for French and Indian War period regalia.
