Try uploading it to a website called Imgur. Then just copy and paste the address at the top in the text.

Hello, if you e-mail the pictures to me at r.amirthalingam@unf.edu I can format them for you. Sounds like the file size is just too big, most cameras take large raw pictures that need to be compressed.

Alternatively follow Isaac's advice and upload them to imgur and post the link.

Ok, here are the pictures:

Your problem was that myArmoury's maximum upload size is 500 KB and your pictures ranged from 600 KB to as big as a MB. Instead of resizing them and risk losing some detail I went ahead and just uploaded them to imgur.

It's a mid 17th Century pikeman's cuirasse. The tassets are missing. They will have looked much like the ones in this example.


I see no reason at all to doubt it's authenticity. The material looks right. The hammer marks look right. The style and shape look right. In addition, these armors are relatively common, and do not command high prices. As a result, they are not often faked.

An image search for pikeman's armor will bring up quite a few examples.
