Sudanese Helmet

Post by Peter_Suciu » Wed Dec 07, 2016 5:11 pm

I recently won this helmet at auction. It is a Sudanese helmet from the Mahdi era (1880-1896). I imagine this could have been an early helmet repurposed, but the Mahdi's forces were still using rather antiquated equipment! It is a lovely example actually.
