Ref #: C-IG-1
BRUNSWICK RESERVE OFFICER SPIKED HELMET.
Brunswick (Braunschweig) spiked helmet for a Reserve officer in Infantry Regiment 92, I and II Battalions, to parade with black buffalo hair plume.
This helmet is all original, and all correct, with the motto "Mit Gott for Furst und Vaterland" on the reservist’s cross,
and NO "FR" or cross impression on the eagle’s chest, indicating that it has NOT been built using an incorrect Prussian reserve plate.
The lacquered leather shell is in excellent condition, as is the calf-skin and silk liner.
There is no damage of note, nor are there any extra holes.
Correct state cockade for Brunswick of blue and gold found under the left chin scale, whereas the Reichs cockade of red/silver/black is found on the right.
Size is approximately a 57.
This is a rare helmet that would be very difficult to upgrade, and is offered for less than any other example on the market!

BAVARIAN GENERAL’S PICKELHAUBE
Bavarian General's Pickelhaube, post 1913 issue with a beautiful full-color enameled centre "wappen".
This particular example would be difficult to upgrade, not only because of the rarity of these helmets, but also because of the superb near-mint condition!
Other than a very slightly sunken crown, there are no flaws or damage of any kind- no extra holes, no missing lacquer or enamel, no rips in the lining.
The body is lacquered felt in a large size (58-59), high-quality calfskin sweatband, and pale pink silk lining.
If you're looking for a "top shelf", unmessed-with pickelhaube, this is it!
Condition: 9.5

EXTREMLY RARE OFFICRE’S PARDE MIRTE 1ST and 3RD BATTALLIONS OF THE 1ST GUARDE REGIMENT OF FOOT
This is an extremely rare piece of headgear, being an Officer's parade mitre, 1st and 3rd Battalions of the 1st Guard Regiment of Foot.
This was the elite unit in which many of the princes of the Prussian Royal House of Hohenzollern began their military careers.
For "regular" parades, a Pickelhaube with plume was worn, but on very special occasions such as the Easter Parade
this was replaced by the traditional grenadier mitre helmet.
Enlisted examples have survived in some numbers, but officer's specimens are exceedingly hard to find.
Apart from overall age and a light patina, the helmet is in remarkable un-altered condition,
with the only significant detraction being the loss of the leather chinstrap to one side of the scales.
The frontplate, although somewhat tarnished, retains almost all of its rich silver plating and much of the original frosting with burnished highlights.
The silver tresse lining the outer seams of the cloth body has also toned over time, but still remains bright where it disappears beneath the metal mounts.
Its original, lightly toned, silver bullion over wood field badge tops it off! Internally, there is a gorgeous,
top-quality calf skin band with inter-woven silk ribbon, and ribbed silk two piece head lining.
The cane stiffeners are present, but broken in a few places. The size is about a 55.
