Type used throughout Europe and Colonial America as well. See Arms and Armor in Colonial America, Peterson #126 left, for a virtually identical example. 8 1/4 height, forged of one piece with rolled over and stepped edge down turned brim. The base of the skull with rosettes and rivet securing the liner band. Good bright finish with a few minor blemishes and forged lamination. Type which served through the Thirty Years' War and English Civil Wars and are still preserved in a few European castle armories.
