Spanish steel cabasset (helmet), ca. 1600-1650. 3-3/4 lb, 7-1/2" tall and 8-10" in diameter. Hand-forged steel helmet of classic form with ridged medial and "pear stalk" terminal, with original rivets near the brim but lacking the interior leather liner, the outside lightly pitted but nice steel gray, the inside and bottom of brim dark and rusty but solid, overall a nice example of a scarce and popular artifact, very similar to the one sold in our Treasure Auction #3 for $1,725.
