Sold
 (This item is subject to special postage, click here for more information.)

English Civil War period breast plate, traditionally worn with a buff coat and back plate by cavalry units and dragoons (mounted infantry of both sides). This has London Armourers Company marks at the neck. There is a musket ball proof dent to the chest.

There is some damage to the left hand shoulder element, but essentially the piece is in excellent condition for its age, with good patination to the front and red rust to the reverse.

Excellent information, Chris, you've been making a big effort! I will spell it out more closely (I'm a historian!) and don't think Bezdek can add much more.
