Postage costs depend on the weight of packages.
For small weights like jewellry / fittings / fabrics / etc. the price will be 6-12-15-…€.
If speaking about body armor, the weight of a package (your order) depends on:
Your size. This is why I first ask for your measurements in your underarmor cloths sending the measurement chart while discussing the order.
The whole set of your armor (spaulders / tassets may be included).
The sort of steel (par example, the hardened spring steel armor will weight about 20% lighter than mild steel).
The destination (sending to USA / Europe / British Isles / Australia / Asia cost not the same of course).
Average weight of the cuirass is about 8-9 kg.
Shipping to EU is about 40-50€.
Shipping to Great Britain/Ireland is 60-65€.
Shipping to US/Canada is about 50-56€.
Shipping to Australia is about 115-128€.
Speaking about helmets/braces/greaves/equipment/etc., the weight of course will be less. The average helmet with chainmail aventail weights about 4-5 kg – so the postage cost will be about 30-35€ (to Germany par example).
Remember that this is the international mail. Prices surely differ from your local. But anyhow Russian Post is not too expensive. These prices of course include the tracking of your parcels. If you will need the Postal insurance, we have to discuss this personaly.

Attic greaves. V century BC – II century BC.
€ 500 – € 680
Scythian-Greek / Europe
V BC – II BC.
During Greek antiquity, greaves were mentioned in many texts, including Hesiod’s “Shield of Heracles”, Homer’s “Iliad” and Virgil’s “Aeneid”. In the “Illiad”, the Greek forces are commonly referred to as “well-greaved Acheans”. There are also non-fictional testimonies of their use among Roman light infantry from Polybius up to Vegetius. These greaves are thought to have been mass-produced by the Romans. While it is generally assumed that greaves were always worn in pairs, there is evidence that many wore just a single greave on the left or right leg. Many skeletons have been found buried with only a single greave, including gladiators and soldiers. People may have worn a single greave as a sign of status, as opposed to any practical use.
