It dates to the period of transition from lighter armor to shot proof. The breastplate is provided with lugs for the attachment of a reinforcing plate allowing flexibility to adapt from guard to combat mode. See item #2 following for a related reinforcing breastplate.Backplate with makers marks RR with canted serifs, of Richard Rathbone who worked in London 1617-36, supplying the Tower.
