    ROUGH Eagle Breast Plate.

    I havent been out in a while so I decided it was time today. I got out to a house that has recently been torn down and I have found a few bottles there. I deided to detect the piles and out popped this thing. I just cleaned it up and finally realized what it was. Pretty good find for down town Salt lake City even though its torn up real good. Its a lot heavier than I thought they would be. Looks like it had 3 prongs on the back and I cant see a makers mark. Still pretty cool.

    Restoration on those isn't very expensive, and well worth the investment for a good display relic. Can you read what the mark on the back says?

    Unfortunately I cant see a makers mark on it. I just looked at my post and realized i said i could see it. Sorry about that. I will end up sending it in to be restored. I dont find something like that every day and would like it to look good.
