There are forge welded links, though they're uncommon. My 14th. century byrnie is half welded links. Reportedly the drape on the Coppergate helm has welded rings as well.

The easiest way to identify welded links on historical pieces is to find rings where the weld has de-laminated over time. All the ones I've seen were made from short flattened coils.
lorenzo (if you are still out there).....just wondering if you ever posted any images of this "14th century byrnie" that you said you have......humm.

How about posting some images of your 14th. century byrnie showing the links in detail as there is some disagreement as to whether European mail was ever welded at all, as can be seen in this thread from another forum.

I have some low quality pictures that were taken before I started conservation work which I'm willing to share privately if you contact me via e-mail. I'm not ready to publish the results of my research on this piece yet and it could be quite some time until it's finished to my satisfaction.


Well after all of these years your conservation work should be done....did you ever publish anything on your "14th century byrnie"....just wondering.

Oh come on, you're just being melodramatic now, I'm perfectly willing to show you what evidence I have.

The pictures have already been shared with a number of interested parties who've asked, including the Royal Armouries. It's not like I'm trying to keep it a big secret but I've put a lot of time and money into this project so far and I'm determined not to do a half ass job of it.
WAITING!!!!!
