    Description

    Baden Model 1899 Landwehr Field Artillery Officer's Helmet. Measuring approximately 8 ½-inches to the top of the ball. Front visor with gilded-brass trim; plain rear leather neck shield. Gilded-brass Baden front plate with separately applied Landwehr cross. The front plate is mounted to the helmet via threaded posts and nuts. No additional holes in the helmet body. A gilded-brass spine runs from the edge of the neck shield to the spike bass. The 3 ½-inch tall artillery ball is mounted to a round base held to the helmet by four star-head screws. The flat chin scales are retained by simple rosettes. Both cockades are present. The helmet is complete with a wide-leather sweat band and silk lining. An illegible ink stamp is present on the lining.

    Condition: Very good. Light to moderate crazing to the surface of the leather; a 2-inch section of the neck shield has come unsewn; the gilt is worn on the ball, base and scales and a bit matte on the helmet plate. From the collection of J. T. Hamrick, M. D.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
