Eleventh Century A.D.
A less expensive version of the single piece helmet, this
style of helmet was the most common form worn in this
period, due to its ease of construction. Panels and frame
are fourteen gauge steel, and the nasal bar can be made of
3/16" steel, if desired.
c. 1100 A.D.
Very briefly at the beginning of the twelfth
century, the Norman nasal helmet was represented in
contemporary artwork (no example survives) with a curious
forward peak.. Some scholars say it is to imitate the
"phrygian Cap" worn by civilians. Made of fourteen gauge
steel. Chased brass edge extra.
