This is a reconstruction following an original from approx. 1370 a.d.
The original is displayed in the Valeria Museum, Sitten, Swizerland.
This type of helmet evolved from the skull cap or cervelliere during the early 14th century.
It's visor is attached with a hinge at the front center and is removeable.
It is therefore often called "klappvisor bascinet".
