      That crown is pictured in Lightbown's Medeval European Jewellery. The
      text of the photo in Lightbown says:
      Coronal. Silver-gilt. Length 55 cm. height 4.5 cm. Hanseatic, fourteenth
      century. Found Badeboda treasure, Aseda parish, Smaland. Statens
      Historiska Museum, Stockholm.
      All he says about this crown in the text is that it as "evidently been
      decorated by stamping," and he goes on to talk about how Lois I of Anjou
      had crowns also decorated by stamping.
      I personally wish that someone had thought to include the thickness of
      the metal.
      Hope this helps!
