Seen used in the 15th  Century by Moorish Warriors, (as so named after their last “official” King). The Boabdil was an open faced form of facial and head protection. Completely covering the head, sides and neck (except the front), the helmet was form fitting. Often cushioned with wool, it created ventilation problems in the desert heat. Constructed of 1 piece of iron (and plated with Damascus Steel), is was heavy at 5-pounds.
