Erik D. Schmid is probably the best out there.....but he is quite pricy.
Hope this helps,

Best source? *Only* source so far as I know, at least for truly period authentic stuff. And really not that pricey, when you consider what you're getting for your money.

I found this pdf in internet: I think it's a very realistic coif, hope it help!

Erik D. Schmid price are very high, but right for the type of work he does. If you don't want to spend so much you have to choose a mass-produced mail, or do it yourself (like I do).
