Harquebusier's pot made of iron and leather with fragments of modern leathers. The skull is made in two pieces joined in a flat seam. The pivoted peak is flat, with a triple bar faceguard with a decorative knop finial. The neckguard is of one piece embossed to simulate three lames. The main edges of the neckguard and the peak have plain inward turns with recessed borders, bordered on the neckguard by nine round headed lining rivets (two of them containing fragments of the linen lining band) and by twelve more round the front of the skull. One cheekpiece survives, the other one is missing. The surface is black from the hammer, with slight corrosion.
