need help identifying a kettle hat
Merry christmas and happy holidays everyone
i have need of peoples help identifing a kind of kettle hat, or rather many kinds of kettle hat advertised all over the 'off the shelf market' this helmet (also included as a image attachment)

in particular has stumped me, some websites call it 14th century, some call it 15th, and really i am quite uncertain how to place it datewise and geographically too.

i am trying to aim for a infantry impression in the latter half od the 14th century (kept generic for simplicity as a fighting kit, but im trying to roughly adhere to a geographical fashion) (i also probably want to spend not very much, since its gonna be a 'side gig, so less than 200 australian dollars.

this kettle helm

is also one i have great interest in since, when it is sold in my country, it sells for a good price.

thank you for all your help in this holiday season and in the year to come

Kettle hat in question [ Download ]
In a nutshell this is fantasy.
Modeled roughly on several sources from the 13th-14th century.
But the constructio: these strange rivets, frills etc are the author's invention.
Waste of money.

The second helmet seems to be related in style to this late 14th century example
