Ok, while I was in Hot Springs today, I went to a flea market.  One of the
> booths had what appeared to be an SCA helm.  It was black,  with a
> detachable visor.  Visor was sorta a bronze/copper color, pointed (boar's
> snout fashion, sorta), and had small holes all over.  The helm had red
> tape
> on it, on two sides.  The nasal piece was in bronze, and split into two
> eyebrow looking decorative pieces.  The detachable visor had black tooled
> leather attached to it, broken, the rest of the leather strap was attached
> to the back of the helm.  The leather strapping was not in real good
> shape -
> cracked in places.  The tooling looked sorta like rayed suns in between
> rayed crescents.  It had close cell foam padding.  The owner of the booth
> wasn't handy, so I couldn't ask where he got it from.  Does this sound
> familiar to anyone?  If it is an SCA legal helm, he was asking a fairly
> reasonable price for it...and it is so rare that a helm is found at a flea
> market, I kinda wanted to make sure it hadn't been lifted from anyone....
