There are three Migration Period swords on display in Norwich museum, from Spong Hill, Bergh Apton and Feltwell, none of which have surviving pommel caps.
The only loose cap I can remember seeing there (in early 2010) was this one, from Mileham, which is 23.5mm long, 12mm wide and 11.5mm thick (you can see the PAS entry here:- http://finds.org.uk/database/artefacts/record/id/247202)
