      I have a short article on period style bracers for "Quivers and Quarrels" and I was not able to find a public domain photo of any that were an actual period style bracer.  Is anyone that has a period style bracer willing to take a photo of it to be used in the article for the magazine?

      One thing the period bracers seem to have in common is that they use buckled straps to hold them in place, not lacing, or metal hooks. The laced on style is more a modern traditional style of fastening. The straps are usually single, double or “Y” shaped.

      Thank you for any help you can give 

      Jon
