Any date on the original ? I must have missed this piece on our recent outing to the Army museum.
Looks very imposing, even with safe edges!

Still it wouldn't be too cool to eat a strike from this baby. :eek:
According to the new museum catalog the piece is dated between 1400 and 1550.
Which is a big time span.
I think it's from 1470 to 1500
