14th-15th century, the period of full plate armor for the elite few. 4 1/2" length of thick proportions with diamond section pyramidal point. Flared butt indicative of a fairly slender wood shaft. Excellent with some age oxidation but most original surface intact. Probably arsenal stored and neglected. The extreme tip bruised from and impact. Dating to the period of mostly leather and mail armor, but full encasement in varied thickness plate in use on knights and nobles. Torso and head were impenetrable, but extremities, throat back and articulated joints were vulnerable. A trade off of capability to match the elite troops and overkill for the less well protected majority.
