This Scottish Targe is really a piece of history! 
1745/46 during the Jacobite uprising, a William Lindsay who was a shieldwright in Perth, Scotland made hundreds of targes for the army of Charles Edward Stuart. He made a distinction in price between an officer's targe and an ordinary targe Most likely the original of our replica is was made by him too, because it was captured at the Battle of Culloden in 1746, and taken south to London with the Jacobite prisoners. It is now in the Museum of the Royal Armouries in The Tower of London. 
This excellent museum replica made by PrimusArms has a removeable central spike, which if mounted makes the shield become an evil weapon. 
It features a brass shield boss in the center, decorative brass rivets and beautiful celtic ornaments embossed in the leather. The Targe is manufactured with hand dyed natural leather which is fixed by brass rivets.
