No, sorry. New computer, and I can't find the photo disk. But...they have
a lame on top and bottom of the cop, and that part is mild steel and rusty.
They are not huge, the padding gets glued on the inside of it (we used
closed cell foam). The vambraces are really shot. It's old, dried out
leather and they have good buckles and some metal strips to reinforce
outside, and those parts can be recycled, but it's mostly useful as a
pattern for making your own, perfectly fitted ones. You'll be putting some
elbow grease into them with sandpaper and steel wool and gun oil, but
generally they are good armor. (Don't use WD40 - the silicone in it
oxidizes into a layer which traps moisture, thus promoting corrosion. It's
ok for regular use I guess, but for long term storage, no.)
