Show Us Your Pommel Inserts
If you have a J1 pommel on your sword, you may be tempted to insert a coin, medallion, or even a jewel into that recess. Perhaps you have something incised onto that pommel, like a cross potent,or a heraldic device or shield shape. So show us the various things you have done to your pommels to make them your own.

I have a weakness for ancient Greek replica coins. I know it is a credibility stretch to put them on a medieval sword, but they are the most beautiful coins ever minted,and I can come up with a plausible story Below - Corinthian coins on an A&A XXa, an Athenian one on an A&A dagger, an Edward III(?) on an Albion Sovereign.

What have you folks done?

Here you go Roger.

By the way, for people who don't like coins, DBK makes a variety of pommel insert designs in various materials, sized to fit your sword.

i don't care much for type G pommels, but one good thing about them is that they provide a good platform for carving/etching. Here is a sword that Armart made for me long ago with a cross formee etched onto the pommel.
