The two-piece skull having a low, file-roped comb, an integral deep neck lame and a gilt plume holder fixed centrally at the base of the comb. The visor with a lateral vision slit with a medial bar and a gilt lifting peg on the right side. The upper bevor has a slightly concave profile and, on either side, eight breath holes around a central one, being attached to the bevor by a peg and hook on the right side. The bevor is secured to the skull by a leather neck-strap and has a wide, integral neck plate matching that on the skull. The visor and both bevors all pivot together on rosette-headed rivets. The main edges of the visor, upper bevor and neck plates are decorated with very fine filed roping to match the comb; they also have recessed borders. A row of rivets just behind the edge of the neck plates secures the lower edge of a surviving lining made of canvas covered with red velvet and stuffed with horsehair.
