Polish or Hungarian, the defenders of Europe against the Ottoman Turks. One piece iron skull forged to a tall point emulating the Turkish chichak (The word zischagge, derives from the Turkish name for the helmet.) Four plate articulated neck guard, sliding nasal bar and pierced well contoured cheek pieces. The skull hammer finished and probably blackened originally, which would preserve it and diminish its visibility as a target. Form rarely encountered.
