Finally I found the definitive depiction that proves that bascinets were worn under great helms. Yes, it's a visored one, but still counts, does it Big Grin ?

I know that someone support the thesis that this wasn't always the case and I want to go deeper in this topic.

I consider it a great helm because of the presence of those orizotal lines on the back of the helm, that in my opinion suggest a multiple plates construction.
