Prussian Silver Pioneer Officer/NCO Pickelhaube
Helmet needs TLC
Black fiber Depaheg body in good shape overall.Silver trim with Tall Officer Spike that has the original Perlring to it with what looks like a later repair with a Brass spike. Note that spike cannot be unscrewed and a piece of wood/cork is stuck underneath the base (see picture) we did not try to remove the spike form the body to get a better idea of the repair and will leave that to the next owner. The Frontplate is the silver Prussian Officers eagle with original mounts and screws. This eagle left deep marks in the helmet body and we assume was always part of it. Two Extra holes on one side (see pictures).
Front and back visors lined with green and red tissue. Inside the shell there are remnant of a white color near the spike, no idea why but no damage or tears. Complete liner with simi-calfskin and silk with various inscriptions and markings. Original sets of Cockades and Officers chinscales. It is what it is. All parts original to period. Priced accordingly.
