Proto Maximilian Armour (Schott-Sonnenberg armour)
Hi,
I found this armour in the Germanisches National Museum in Nürnberg. Does anybody know if this is a complete half harness or a composite Armour? I don't think the helmet, for example, is original to the harness.

There is another similar one in the Glasgow Museum. I'm pretty sure the cross is not original, probably added much later and I'm skeptical of the blackening.

Then there is the Sonnenberg armour from the Hofjagd und Rüstkammer. This one in known not to be a composite AFAIK and has a helmet that fits the gorget.:
