Physical Description

It has a fairly deep cut-out at the neck, shallow arm-openings, and a medial keel terminating in a triangular facet just above the waist which has a flange deepening to a point at its centre. The neck, arm-openings and waist-flange have plain, inward turns. The edges are bordered by thirty-two large, round-headed, brass rivets with circular, internal washers (of which one is now missing at the centre of the neck and at the centre of the waist-flange), and numerous pairs of small holes for stitching on a missing leather edging fot the attachment of a lining. At either side of the chest is riveted a brass, mushroom-shaped stud with a circular, internal washer to engage the shoulder-straps of the backplate. A large suspension-hole has later been drilled at each shoulder.
