This might not have been an intentional slip-up.. take into fact, the armor could've been broken before, and repaired when Sir Ector (sp?) wore it.
Usually, a break of that magnitude, would've rendered the breastplate useless, and unrepairable. the whole section would need to be replaced, or re-forged from scratch. (back to a whole plate.)
