A superb, new to the market Prussian Reservist Officer pickelhaube.
Untouched and recently cupboard found in a house clearance.
All fittings are present and are in untouched, un-polished condition. Skull is in good damage and dent free condition with age marking to the exterior finish only.
The helmet plate is devoid of battle honours indicating a reservist officer. Its never ben removed from the helmet and is making an impression on the black finish.
Some period wear to the gilt finish but untouched in recent years.
The spike is fixed.
Interior is complete with it’s silk upper lining, and leather headband. Rear inner peak has suffered some moth nibbling to the red finish. The dark green inner front peak is in mint condition.
Silk liner is with an owner name label and to the inner skull under the silk liner is a supplier paper issue label (see images).
Fantastic overall shape and condition, now in grubby untouched condition, with most wear marking due to storage.
