Prussian Line Kurassier Fahnrich/NCO Eigentum helmet Model 1897.  Vet bring back from WWII that we obtained from an old collection..   Officer quality custom made bright nickel steel helmet body with fine brass trim.  Rounded front EM style visor and "football" style spike base with round retaining studs in square pattern that allows for change to an officer clover leaf base without drilling extra holes in helmet body.  Single piece back visor as used by officer that is lined inside with officer style black velvet.  Front visor is painted green inside.  

Helmet body has excellent contour with no rust or pitting.  One small dark spot on surface of front visor.  Helmet bell has numerous small "dings" (see photo) as Vet who we purchased this from allowed his children to play with helmet.  No extra holes in helmet body.  Frontplate is the officer style gilded Prussian line eagle with screw retainers on back.    Brass football spike base has polished nickel removable spike.  Long rounded chinscales on screw rosettes.  Large officer Reichs and Prussian cockades.  Inner liner has tan sweat leather and silk headliner. This appears to have been replaced.  Overall a beautiful high quality Kurassier Fahnrich helmet that needs a little help to the body to improve it to near mint.   This type of helmet  would have been easy for the Fahnrich to modify to full officer with change in front visor, spike and base and addition of Clover Leaf rosettes.
