Italian bascinet "Hounskull" of the 1390-1430 years was widespread among European knights. There were no holes on the left side of extended visor, because this part of helmet often caught an attack of spear.

Typical feature of Italian bascinets were almost straight back part of dome. Eye slits and holes provide with perfect vision and ventilation. By you regard, we may make a cross on the left side of visor.
