European coat of plates (fragments), detail view, 14th c, from the castle Hirschenstein near Passau, consisting of a chest plate with four weapon chains, 30 plates of body armor for the abdomen, sides, back and shoulders. Extremely rare armor type, preserved only in a few small fragments around the world. In particular, the breastplate with attached weapon chains was previously known only from early pictures and grave monuments.
