Another early form of head protection, The Hatchi Gane developed in the mid-9th Century. Used up to the 14th Century, in essence- it was a single iron or copper shaped plate. Constructed to fit mover the forehead of the wearer, it often included a slight brim or visor extension (over the eyes). Cloth or silk was threaded through side slots and tied to the back of the head. When worn, often – various forms of Chain Mail Coifs (overhead) could be worn (with Jingasa Hats).
