    Bavarian Model 1886 Cavalry Officers' Spiked Helmet (Pickelhaube). Black lacquered leather body and visors, the front visor trimmed in brass. 4½" tall fluted spike on a cruciform base mounted to the helmet body with three star-headed studs. Cruciform base retains traces of silvering. Leather-backed brass convex chinscales with Bavarian cockade on the left side and Reich's cockade on the right. Nicely detailed Bavarian front plate mounted to the body of the helmet with two threaded studs and nuts. Leather sweatband and satin/silk lining. The helmet's body is moderately crazed in the rear left quadrant and the metal surfaces have modest wear. There are no additional holes in the front of the helmet body. The lining is modestly worn, otherwise the helmet is in very good condition.
