Extremely nice and 100% original Garde du Corps Pickelhaube with its Parade silver mounted Eagle top. This is the elegant Model 1895 type.
Tombac body with silver trim. Beautiful lobster tail back visor with most of its black paint remaining. Front visor painted green underneath. Note that there are a few old minor repair spots underneath the tombac, but this is quite usual for these type of helmets as they have been used -and re used- over a period extending to WW1.
Original leather liner in nice supple condition. Garde du Corps Frontplate in German silver with the "Vaterland Bandeau" around the edges and the Garde one "Suum Cuique: in the center surrounding the Black Eagle emblem. Original Cockards & tombac chinscales (relined with leather) over M1895 posts.
Silver Eagle is also a Guaranteed original and is attached to helmet by a center screw. Some repair done to it as shown on pictures, nonetheless not one of the "too" many copies sold as original in todays market. This is the real deal. Overall a pristine piece, very fairly priced with Age of Kings as usual.
