Steel Greek Lambda Shield - Red and Silver
Up for auction here is a Greek style shield made of thick dished steel. The front of the shield bears a Silver Lambda in the style of traditional Spartan shields of old. A flat wooden brace has been attached to the back to make carrying and weilding the shield more comfortable. Heavy leather straps are used to secure the arm along the back—one going over the forearm and one intended to be gripped (or held). They are spaced about 11 inches apart and positioned to provide optimum balance when holding the shield. This is tends to be much more comfortable than any other shield strap system I've seen. The shield has also been applied with a coat of topcoat/clearcoat to further protect and preserve it from wear. It measures a large 27 inches in diameter, and weighs about 8 pounds, 6 ounces. Don't overpay for one of those cheap cookie-cut foreign mass-manufactured shields. Get a stronger and more durable one right here while you can!
*PLEASE NOTE: The bolts on the front of the shield are actually RED to match the rest of the shield, not silver as shown here in our first 2 prototype photos!
