"The blow that killed the bandit split the brooch in two. Only a witcher's sword could have done this."
After a long search through the swamp, Geralt finds a cloven Salamandra medallion, along with Berengar's belongings on a mutilated corpse by the clay pits. This discovery leads him to conclude that Berengar must be dead.
This quest item should not be confused with ordinary Salamander brooches which look identical in every way. The only way to tell the difference is that this quest item stays in Geralt's quest items pocket and that regular badges remain in his normal inventory satchel.
This quest item appears to serve no purpose after acquisition.
