WW1 Imperial German Bavarian Officers Pickelhaube Spiked Helmet. The body of the helmet shows the usual crazing for its age but nothing detracting. The plate has been polished at one time partially removing the gilt finish but you can see it has been on there forever. The chin scales show well with the leather backing on them. The officers state cockades are on each side and the spike shows well with the proper officers stars securing it.
The leather sweatband is still present and presents well but the silk liner with the bamboo inserts have come loose. It is still present however and could be repaired. There are no extra holes in the helmet which of course is very important from a collectors stand point. It appears to be named inside in pencil though I have not done any research on the previous owner.Nice helmet that present well.
