The Golden Hat of Schifferstadt was discovered in a field near the town of Schifferstadt in Southwest Germany in 1835. It is a Bronze Age artefact made of thin sheet gold and served as the external decoration of a head-dress, probably of an organic material, with a brim and a chin-strap. The hat is one of the group of four similar artifacts known as the Golden hats.
The Schifferstadt specimen was the oldest of a group of four known Golden hats, cone-shaped Bronze Age head-dresses made of sheet gold. The Schifferstadt hat was the first to be discovered. After the example from Berlin, it is the best-preserved one, fully preserved with the exception of a small part of the brim.
