bever (plural bevers)
- a movable covering for the mouth and chin on a close helmet.
- 1786: Some close helmets have a farther improvement called a bever, the bever when closed covers the mouth and chin, and either lifts up by revolving on the same pivots as the visor, or lets down by means of two or more pivots on each side near the jaws, in which case the bever consists of several laminÃ¦ or plates, one shutting over the other. â€” Francis Grose, A Treatise on Ancient Armour and Weapons, page 8.
