Full-sized suit of Armor #1

If you know me at all, you know that I am a super fan of anything medieval.  But I don’t live in a place where you will find that kind of thing.  The center of the state of California wasn’t even more than a total wasteland back when knights and armor and that type of thing were around.  So to find a full set of armor was about the furthest thing from my mind when I was driving along Main Street just east of our downtown area.  There are several antique, collectables, and well, junk stores along that area and we seldom stop in because they generally don’t carry things we don’t are interested in.  But recently I was shocked to see on display just outside the front door this amazingly nice recreation on a suit of armor.  I had to stop and get some pictures.   I say, “get some pictures” because as I looked at the price tag, even knowing that I could probably get it much lower by haggling with the owner, it was going to be more than I could comfortably afford.  So, no, I didn’t add it to my collection, but I did get my pictures of it, which did go in my collection!!

Scooter, thanks for checking for its rustproofing!

Bernard, This thing was made for a much more slenderererer man than I, and it had been so painstakingly prepared for showing I would not have asked.
