One-piece skull of rounded almond shape with narrow near-flat integral brim projecting to an obtuse point front and rear, its edge formed with a plain inward turn. The base of the crown encircled by ten lining rivets (replaced) holding a leather band (partially detached). Two rivets at each side also serve to suspend a narrow slightly tapering one-piece cheek piece (the right partly detached at its front end). Fitted at the rear with two further rivets securing a later plume holder of copper (damaged). Retaining its original black-from-the-hammer finish (worn and showing forging flaws). These early helmets almost never retain the cheek pieces.
