    Description

    Superb 17th Century European Morion Helmet. Approximately 10-inches tall. This handsome helmet features a one-piece body in the traditional form with a remarkably tall roped comb. The base of the skull is bordered with naively-etched brass rosette washers secured by round-head lining rivets. The roped brim features sharply angled points fore-and-aft. A modestly-etched plume holder is riveted just left of center on the front of the helmet. The interior displays hammer marks and has been coated with a preservative coat of rust protection. Ex Peter Finer collection. Condition: Excellent. Exterior with scattered age spotting and occasional fine surface pits. The brim has small and two slightly larger holes.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
