In contrast to the legionnaires the Roman officers wore a helmet with a horsehair crest.
The crest was probably a brush with a wooden base; therefore the now commonly offered crests with a metal base seem to be wrong. There was no archaeolgical found verifying metal based crests.
We sell these crests in different colours, here in red.
A pair of crest holders can be ordered separately with No. AH6190+91.
Suitable helmets to add these crests/crest holders to are AH6052N - AH6053N - AH6315N.
