Just out of a WWI veteran families estate. Literally out of the attic find!
Bavarian 19th Infantry Regiment (Infantry Regiment of King Victor Emmanuel III of Italy's Regiment) Model 1896.
Bavarian 19th Infantry Regiment (Infantry Regiment of King Victor Emmanuel III of Italy's Regiment) Model 1896. Salty and original piece! Black leather helmet body with brass trim. Helmet leather body has good firm and firm stitching. Leather has mild age related crazing and is dirty but no loss of lacquer. Interior leather liner is still supple and has original leather draw string. Inside back visor is the clear stamp of the 19th Infantry Regt. No extra holes in helmet body. Metal trim is oxidized but otherwise in excellent condition. Frontplate still shows the "frosting".
Original leather chinstrap still soft and supple. Unique NCO style Reichs/Bavarian 2 piece cockades. Interestingly, the cockades are on the opposite sides as normal but they have been in this position for a long time. Absolutely 100% original and UNTOUCHED helmet from an old estate. Such untouched and historical pieces rarely found today.
