    Lightbulb Very scarce Landsknecht Officer Armor, ca. 1560: information requested on maker marks











    Hello,

    Here is a very scarce armor of a German Landsknecht Officer, ca 1560. Would you know the maker marks ?
    I think one is the Nuremberg guild mark of armorers (second pic), the 'Hans Michel' armorer mark (third pic). The two others are unknown to me although I have seen one of the same on a German armor dated to early XVI century (in last pic, the mark -which is difficult to see- is shown bottom right).

    Thanks ,
