Krefeld Helmet -Italic "D"

Information for Krefeld Helmet -Italic "D":

another welcome new addition to the Deepeeka line, the Krefeld helmet is based on an example found near a leginary fortress outside Krefeld, Germany.
Like the Mainz helmet, it features applied brass cross-bracing and other elaborate ornamentation, including a pair of raised eyes (complete with eyeballs and iris!) on the forehead.
The abandonment of the fort in AD 69 seems to provide later 1st century date for the find, but like the Mainz helmet, the typology seems to fall into a later period, so we have provided an expanded range of dates for possible use.

This style of helmet was found in Germany near Krefeld. Like the original it is completely handmade from steel and brass fittings. A comfortable cotton padding is included. It is dated 69 up to the 2.century AD. 

It was handmade from 18 gauge steel, trimmed in brass and weighs abt. 4 lbs.,head size: max 62 cm.

A Swiss expert on Roman arms has praised this helmet for its fine manufacturing and its interesting brass applications; a type of helmet which so far could not be found on the market.
