Prussian Wartime Pioneer Helmet. Model 1915 - Silver!
Model 1915 - with Silver trim.
Unusual variant of a wartime re-issue for Pioneer Batalions. Black lacquered leather body with Silver trim. Overall condition of lacquer is excellent to near mint. Rare model 1915 "silvered" removable spike and base, silver Eagle frontplate over re-issued gromettted holes. Inside black lining in excellent and supple condition. Chintsrap and cockads are replacement.
We know of the brass issued Model 1915 Spikes, but have never seen the silver version. This is a first. The Patina is all coherent with a period wartime manufacture. A rare variant.
