Prussian Field Artillery Officers/NCO Pickelhaube & Case - MINT
Very hard to upgrade.
Prussian Field Artillery Officer/NCO Model 1897. Found on our "last" buying trip in Germany. Black leather helmet body with fine fire gilded trim. Helmet is untouched and has never been cleaned. Body has excellent form with no flaws and firm stitching. Exterior lacquer in excellent to mint condition. No extra holes in helmet body. Fancy soft sweat leather helmet lining with the "Awes Marke" name pressed in gold. Green silk headliner with remnants of the makers label.
Inside visors are colored red and green, round front visor. Fine fire gilded line Prussian Eagle front plate. Tall artillery officers ball and base with 4 gold brads at base. Convex gold chinscales with gold rosettes. Standard Reichs and Prussian NCO style cockades. Beautiful and outstanding looking helmet in near mint condition, with its leather case (strap broken on case). Near MINT to MINT condition - Hard to find a better example.
