Salade 1470-1490

Open faced German. Center with flat topped crest line which changes to a central crease in the tail. Skull with nice form and flowing into a well formed side and tail. Bottom edge with narrow outward turned roll. Lining rivets securing a leather strap to which is sewn a quilted lining. Chin strap with Y ends secured to two additional, lower rivets. Overall a nice interpretation. Made of hardened and tempered spring steel. Made by Peter Polyak in app. 2017 from 2mm C45 steel which has been hardened and tempered. It was made as an example of a "typical" helmet, not as a copy of a particular one. Finished thickness generally .070-.080 in. (1.7-2.0mm).
