    Generally shallow in form and covering only the upper half of the face, visored sallets were usually complemented by a separate bevor, a defense covering the chin and throat that was strapped around the back of the neck. German sallets typically have long pointed tails, the angularity of which reflects the late Gothic style. This example is stamped on the right side of the tail with the armorer's mark of Hans Blarer of Basel: a rooster within a shield.
