Notes

Lent to Dover Castle, as part of a composite armour, untill 1981, together with III.2561-5 and III.2573-4. The waist plate was removed from the backplate III.2566 A, 2 December 1989. The waist plate is similar to III.1284 by ?Jorg Treytz, c.1485 (part of Churburg 24), but the culet lames probably restored. Check whether this could be the same as the Norton Hall backplate III.1229. The descriptions match.
