Armor Display at June 15 DEMO (@ Persen House)

I would like to set up a display of our most period armor for our demo at the Persen House on June 15, 2019.  If anyone has articles of armor that they would be willing to display to the public, please let me know.  Awesome stuff like riveted mail, period gauntlets, and helms would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks!
