Original Antique World War I German Spike Helmet
Very good condition WWI Imperial German Model 1915 Pickelhaube helmet that is a scarce and desirable ersatz variation with a metal shell. The Prussian cockade on the right side and the leather chinstrap appear to be reproductions, otherwise helmet is guaranteed original. Shell has nice original green paint with several dents. Prussian eagle wappen and spike have nice original paint. The cockades (Prussian on left side and national colors on right side) have nice paint. Leather chinstrap is soft and supple with a little normal wear. Complete with original leather liner that is supple with some normal wear. Helmet has an ink stamped corps depot marking on the underside of the rear visor. One spike base rivet is absent. A nice ersatz Pickelhaube for your collection.
