Skull formed in two pieces with tall comb and wide upturned brim coming to a point at front

“in the white” on a blackened background. Base surrounded by rivets with brass rosette –
shaped washers (several missing). Riveted plume holder at rear with brass rosettes.
Small repair on inside at front with minor defects. Retains most of what appears to be the
original blackening. Such helmets were popular with the watch of many of the larger
towns. Attractive example of the “black and white” morion.
