German bascinet

It is kept in the "Museum of German History" in Berline. It’s a very beautiful bascinet! With a klappvisor and stylish face guard it survived to the present day. There is quite a common and somewhat grounded guess that the museum exhibit consists of 2 parts found in different geographic areas of the Empire: the cupola was discovered in a half-putrefied cart found in Franconia near Nuremberg, while the face guard was found somewhere in Pomerania. Later, museum workers united them and got the helmet shown in the museum.
