Referenced as Fig. 105c in 105. German Knight, Günther von Schwarzburg d.1349 in Armies of the Middle Ages, Volume 2 by Ian Heath:
A form of visor, usually referred to today by its modern name of Klappvisier, evolved from this in Germany c.1360; this was hinged by the middle of its top edge to a vertical bar similarly attached by 2 studs on the brow of the helmet. 105b shows such a visor, from the tomb effigy of Konrad von Kronenberg (d.1372). 105c depicts a more unusual klappvisier from a Bohemian altarpiece of c.1380.
