Here the counterfeiter has invested some innovation because silver has no pores. There is something else, this fibula has the head of a saint, not the head of a dragon, and the originals published in Bulgaria were offered to the National Museum to be redeemed, but the late Professor Bozhidar Dimitrov refused, even though they were original and unique.
