Pappenheim Helmet - commonly known as a lobster tail pot. The lobster-tailed pot had articulated cheek-pieces; a fixed forward projecting peak that included a sliding nasal bar, or, alternatively, a hinged peak with three attached bars to protect the trooper's face from sword cuts; and an articulated "tail" protecting the back of a head and neck that was said to resemble that of a lobster. Similar helmets were worn in the late 17th century by Polish winged hussars and Prussian cavalry.
