Default Closed helmet circa 1630

Hello everyone, for my first presentation, here is a munition closed helmet, around 1630, it is made in two parts with a simple visor. The closure hooks are in good condition. It is a beautiful piece without modifications or restorations. Probably worn by a Thirty Year War rider.
If anyone has ever encountered a similar model?

Bonjour Lansquenet; bienvenue sur le forum .
To my non expert eyes, this not being the helmet of a noble knight, sure is an excelent genuine example for combat.

Thank you Fernando, yes I think the same thing as you. Simple and effective for the troop in combat.

Personally I have a real liking, and even affection for the simpler munitions style arms and armour.... The pieces that went into battle on warriors, as opposed to being worn on the privileged individuals who sent them there.

I'm in total agreement with David and Fernando. What a great piece! The 'munitions grade' pieces saw combat, rugged conditions, weathering and really lived the history of the moment! I feel the same way about weapons-

Hi. Lansquenet

I know nothing about either of your items you have recently posted but I do admire your taste and would like to extend a warm welcome to our little patch of the internet.
Kind regards
Ken
