Medieval Roman Centurion Helmet Armor with Red Crest SCA LARP Costume. 18 Gauge Carbon Steel W/ Brass Fittings. This is a reproduction of an Imperial-Gallic Centurion Helmet. The helmet style was used by the Roman army from the 1st century BC to the early 2nd century AD. The design for the helmet originated from the Gaul region of the Roman Empire (now modern day France and Belgium), and was more than likely forged by Gallic smiths.
Therefore, the helmets retained the influences in construction and design of the original Gallic design. The Imperial helmet was more ornate and gave better protection than the previous Coolus helmet of the Roma Army.Brass reinforcement was added to the ear holes and along the edges of the helmet. Brass bosses were added to the neck guard and cheek guards.
The neck guard of the previous model was extend to offer better protection of the vulnerable neck. Where the Coolus was constructed of bronze the Imperial was made of iron. The Centurion Helmet was mounted with a horizontal red crest. It's easy for the officer to identify them on the battle field. The Centurion was a professional soldier that commanded 100 men (hence the name century).The majority of the Roman Legions command fell to the Centurions. Centurion helmet and officer helmet look similar. Pay attention to the direction of the red crest. Red crest on the centurion helmet goes from side to side and the one of officer's helmet goes from back to front. The helmet is polished carbon steel.
The wings are steel with golden rivets and are mounted on hinges. The top of the helmet is adorned with scalloped steel patterns. A reinforcing horizontal visor is fitted across the front of the helmet with a two steel rivets. The edges of the helmet are reinforced with double layered brass.
The accents are brass and made durable. The Crest of the helmet is steel mounted with two screws. The crest itself is horse hair dyed red. The helmet will fit most sizes when worn with an arming cap.SwordNArmory is your one-stop shop for all sword enthusiasts, backyard cutters, martial artists, anime fans, and more.
