Does any member of RAT have measurements or scale drawing for the Deir el Medineh helmet at all?

I'd be very grateful if you had! Big Grin
I just bought Mahand Vogt's Spangenhelme. Baldenheim und verwandte Typen, which gives a description (if I am not mistaken as I do not have the copy at hand right now). I will later check what this book states about this helmet.

Best wishes,

Many thanks Martijn! Big Grin
