    Beautiful Prussian Guard Officer Helmet with Horse Hair Parade Plume. A splendid example in parade configuration measuring approximately 14-inches tall with an impressive gilded eagle front plate and guard star secured to the helmet by small square nuts. No extra holes in the body. The removable parade plume is mounted on a circular base which is secured to the helmet by four star-head retainers with threaded shafts. A gilded-brass spine runs the length of the rear of the helmet and the front visor is trimmed in gilded brass. Gilded-flat chinscales are secured to the helmet via gilded rosettes. The helmet retains both cockades. Complete with leather sweatband and white silk liner. No readily visible maker or size markings on the helmet.

    Condition: Very good to excellent. Minor crazing to the leather surface, mainly on the rear visor. The rear visor has come unstitched at either end but the repair can be easily done. From the collection of J. T. Hamrick, M.D.
