Original WWI Prussian Landwehr Officer Pickelhaube with Cross
Original Item: Only One Available. This is a smart-looking, officer pickelhaube from a Landwehr-Infanterie-Regiment.
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 Reserve Cross centered in an eagle’s chest. The cross displays the phrase "Mitt Gott für König und Vaterland."
The chin scales are very good. They have full leather behind them. A single Prussian state kokarde (cockade) appears on the right side as well as the Reich’s kokarde on the left. The spike atop the helmet is not detachable and is intricately decorated at the base.
The helmet’s interior reveals no depot marks on the back visor. We see a fine brown leather sweatband that shows only moderate use. Attached to that sweatband is a simply beautiful white silk liner. The silk watermarks are really attention-getting as well as gorgeous. This is one handsome silk liner. There is a name written on the liner in ink that reads DON NEMZEK. All of the original hardware is present. The helmet is 100% original and in good condition.
