    Doublet 1580. 1. This aiglet was sewn onto the lace and I can find no evidence of marks indicating that it was riveted at any time. There is no evidence so far for sewing aiglets to laces. Also, the quality of sewing is very poor. 2. Many times the ends of the aiglets were cut or filed into triangular points in order to bend these ends down to hold the fabric of the laces. The ends have been on this aiglet were not bent down so that is another reason to suspect this was a replacement.
