IMPERIAL GERMAN GUARD REGIMENT OTHER RANKS PICKELHAUBE HELMET.
The black leather skull is in perfect condition and it is complete with all gilt brass fittings. Large Guard regiment helmet plate, spike, leather chin strap with brass buckles. The helmet cockade to the left side is the standard red, white and black state colours but the one to the right side is very unusual but it is totally original to this helmet, it is constructed in black silk, why it is like this rather than the standard type i have no idea but perhaps an explanation could be is that the original owner was in morning for the lost war ? The interior of the helmet features a standard black leather liner, the back peak is unit stamped, R.A.G 1903 REGGR3 1903. An exceptionally nice example of a guard regiment pickelhaube helmet.
