Pictures of rings of an authentic riveted coif

Coif owned by John Johnson

These rings have been riveted in the "European" style, in that the rivets are small triangular wedges.

The nasal of the coif was removed by Mr. Johnson.  Notice how flush the backs of the rings are. Most of the rivets are undetectable, even at high magnification.
