Knight helmet barbutet https://imgur.com/a/aSRJh

Another knight helmet with lots of holes. Looks scary like a dark soul knight https://imgur.com/a/RD6AF

I also like the tiny little ornaments for christmas tree sticking to the helmet give the knight a very scary look https://imgur.com/a/Md5uC

One of my favorite's definity has to be the late medieval sallet. My favorite helmet of all time is the sallet of Boabdil (Muhammad XII). It's an utterly beautiful piece of art. I think it looks absolutely heroic



Comrade, I'm sorry to tell you it's not true what you're saying. It is not from Boabdil, but from Philip I of Castile, "the Beautiful One". You can check it here: https://www.patrimonionacional.es/colecciones-reales/colecciones/armeria/celada-de-felipe-i-de-castilla-el-hermoso-0

[...] Because of the orientalizing character of the decoration it was also linked in the nineteenth century without foundation to Boabdil, the last sultan of Muslim Granada.

My favorite type is probably the early to mid 15th century Frogmouth, either as helm or great bascinet

There is also the Yarm helmet (which might be Anglo-Saxon according to some) found in England, but there are strong suspicions about its authenticity:

I remember how disappointed I was when I learned that it hadn't any link with Boabdil. As a kid this helmet fascinated me, and when I saw it in the Real Armeria of Madrid, I slightly push on the showcase, which made the helmet swing on its mount. I was like 'wow I just moved the helmet of Boabdil!'  :facepalm:
Still an amazing helmet.
