Original WWI Prussian Infantry Officer Pickelhaube Helmet
Original Item: Only One Available. This is a very nice condition smart-looking, officer pickelhaube from a Prussian Infanterie-Regiment issued during World War One.
A number of refinements took place over the ensuing fifty years after the pickelhaube’s 1842 Prussian Army debut. The leather body’s condition is very good. All of the helmet’s furniture is highly-detailed gilt brass. Its wappen (coat of arms) features a large eagle with the King's motto, "Mit Gott Für Koenig und Vaterland" (With God for King and Country, i.e. Prussia).
The chin scales are in great condition, solid and functional with full leather behind them. A single Prussian state kokarde (cockade) appears on the right side. The spike atop the helmet is not detachable and is intricately decorated at the base. The base cup is adorned with 4 stars.
The helmet’s interior reveals no depot marks on the back visor. It is approximately a size 7 US (56cm). We see a fine dark leather sweatband that shows only moderate use. The helmet is 100% original and offered in very good condition.
