Semi Relic Other Ranks Imperial Pickelhaube. 1915.
The helmet is in what i would call a semi relic state, the leather body has lots of surface crazing and lumps and bumps with a peak thats only held on by the two round side pins, the metal fittings are all in pretty good shape and the front eagle plate is complete with no damage or missing areas. The inside has lost its liner and there is a clear 1915 stamp to the inside.
This pickelhaube recently turned up in the Cardiff area once belonging to a member of the RA who won the MM, i did see the whole grouping but was too late to purchase the complete lot , but was lucky enought to get my hands on the haube.
