YOU ARE BIDDING ON 18 PIECES OF SPANISH LEG ARMOR PLATES AND I BELIEVE FROM 2 DIFFERENT SETS.....ALL OF THESE ARE FROM THIS SAME ESTATE AND FROM DOCUMENTS I FOUND WITH THESE I WOULD HAVE TO SAY IT COULD WELL BE A VERY EARLY SET OF ARMOR PLATES MY GUESS WOULD BE TO PROTECT THE LEGS...THERE ARE SEVERAL DIFFERENT COLORS OF PAINT ..I SPRAYED A LITTLE OIL JUST TO SEE WHAT WAS UNDER THE TOP LAYER AND THERE APPEARS TO BE STILL SOME ORIGINAL LEATHER OR EARLY REPLACEMENT LEATHER....THIS WOULD BE GOOD FOR YOUR COLLECTIBLES ROOM..IT WOULD REQUIRE SOME CLEANING IF YOU DECIDED TO DO THAT...IT IS A CONVERASTION PIECE AT THE WORST ..IT YOU ARE WAITING FOR ME TO RAIVE AND JUMP UP AND DOWN..IT AIN'T GONNA HAPPEN....!!!! I DON'T KNOW THIS STUFF AND I CANNOT RECOMMEND YOU TO BID ON SOMETHING I KNOW NOTHING ABOUT..NOT THAT I KNOW THAT MUCH ABOUT ANYTHING..BUT I DO HAVE ENOUGH SENSE TO READ THE DATE ON A COIN AND SAY TO YOU " VERY NICE COIN...WORTH BIDDING ON ! " ETC..BUT IN THIS CASE IT IS SOMETHING THAT HAS BEEN STORED FOR GENERATIONS AND I JUST REALLY DON'T KNOW.I DO KNOW THIS..SOMEBODY IS GOING TO OWN IT !! NO RESERVE. !!
