    Lacing looks new. Scales look authentic. Makes for a nice change from the usual fake lamellar I see.

    Two things you might be interested in:

    1. Re-lacing in authentic style
    2. Cleaning, polishing, and etching a scale to see if that gives clues as to how it's made.

    If you haven't seen it yet, check out the Met Museums online stuff on Tibetan armours. The print book is an excellent resource.
