16th cent (late)
Of "Black and White" form with recessed bands on each side of the skull. High, roped comb. Neck plate and brim formed of separate plates, each with rolled, recessed and roped borders. Cheek plates with flared bottom (conforming to the neck plate), raised circle in the center and a raised edge at the face openning. Signs of delamination as is common with authentic pieces. Includes original patch at the tail flare and 2 rivets to stabilize laminations at the forhead. Extremely fine roping on the rolls. Nuremberg guild mark in the white band on the brim. White bands lightly cleaned to restore original look. Right cheek plate replaced. Overall oxidized surface. No signs of cleaning that would affect the surface. Small holes in the comb.
