It's hard to say whether this armour was made in the 17th or 19th century, I guess the Tibetan forces that used them didn't see a need for upgrading something that worked so well for them! Heading to auction at Thomas Del Mar is this piece of armour, expected to sell for £700-900. Reinforced be leather, the armour gets its strength from a series of plates attached together.
