WWI German Baden Pickelhaube Spike Helmet
Original WWI Baden spiked helmet with reproduction chinstrap and no kokarden, which can be easily replaced. Inside rear visor marked B. IV", dome has makers stamp with "Dresden" and "1915. No extra holes behind front plate. Front plate has a minor crack that a previous owner tried to repair with glue (see pics). This however does not detract from the frontal view of the frontplate when attached to the helmet. This can easily be replaced with a different Baden or Prussian frontplate, which would also be correct for this helmet. Some crazing to front and rear visors.
Overall, the helmet shows little if any wear, other than years of storage wear. Stitching on front visor has come loose, but is still secured with visor pins. You can take the stitching out and re-attach using a saddle stitch method.
