Default Lobster-tailed pot helmet, zischagge,

This type of helmet were made in large series and we canít find in most of them some marks made by armourers to recognize the parts of each helmet before assembly.
Any comment on it will be welcome.

In fact lobster tail pot helmet were very popular in Europe during the 17 th century and made in large quantity , his construction needing about parts 10- 12 different parts we can suppose that different smiths were working together and may be specialized in some components (,Cheekpieces, neck laminated defence etc.. this could explain why most of the parts are with marks.

I love times like this when things that seem so thoroughly modern and part of our lives now, often have roots that stretch far into the past. It is a reason a love learning more about weaponry. The items discussed in this forum are composite technologies upon which the owner's life often depended. Such critical items were carefully crafted and the finest examples are marvels of manufacturing, metallurgy, ergonomics, etc. As such few individuals possessed the full range of skills to craft all the components from scratch, so a great deal of coordination was required. Seeing this evidence of prefabrication is really interesting, and an elegant solution to this problem.

Thanks for sharing, Cerjak!
