Default Prussian Cuirass Model ?

Also I would like to have an opinion about the internal lining .
Inside the breast near the shoulder one mark “KRU 1859” for "Krupp"
Outside in the breast and back plate a crown and GF (Gewher Fabrik)(for the Royal Rifle Factory Amberg), , and also 2 matching numbers with AA for the size
Any comments on it are welcome.

The "Crown", and the "GF" show that this must be a Bavarian cuirass, made or at least proofed by the Bavarian "Gewehr Fabrik" at Amberg.

.........and the "Z" could perhaps be the mark of ZIGONI, a man who collected arms etc from the battlefields and sold them to the Bavarian governement.
