Hessen Enlisted 116th Infantry Pickelhaube

Nicely Marked in Back Visor

Hessen 116th Infantry Regiment Enlisted Man Model 1895. Uncleaned and unpolished helmet. Black lacquered leather helmet body with brass metal trim. The helmet body in excellent condition with even lacquer and firm stitching. The inside leather liner is the black dyed pattern that is still soft and supple. The frontplate is the Hessen Lion in brass that is fixed to the helmet with two split brads over grommeted holes (see photos).

The helmet is marked inside the back visor "IR 116 and 1904". It is very hard to read due to the darked leather but can be discerned in sunlight. Hessen Style cross base maintained by rounded split brads. Hessen style fluted spike that unscrews on top which is proper for the 116th Regt. Brass back spine with ventilation slide. M1891 side posts with an original set of EM cockades. The Hessen cockade is the standard non-serrated style used by Hesse. Original leather strap. Excellent Hessen style brass trimmed helmet that is in original condition.
