|nice little armour|
Wonder how it got used. Who did the damage. And most importantly, why was such a fat man going into combat? (Well, I suppose I only need to look to myself)
It is fire blackened, with those nice lead lines across the top. No buckles under the arms, but a belt to go under that rather cool peascod placqart.
Its a heavy one though...likely 16, maybe even 14 gauge. The back is light 18 gauge iron. The surface plate was probably a plain anvil which left a lot of scars on the surface. The owner probably liked it that way!
