    Bavarian Model 1886 Infantry Officers' Spiked Helmet (Pickelhaube) and Storage Case. Black lacquered leather body and visors, the front visor trimmed in gilded brass. 5" tall fluted spike on a cruciform base mounted to the helmet body with three star-headed studs. Leather-backed gilded flat chinscales with Bavarian cockade on the left side and Reich's cockade on the right. Leather sweatband and satin/silk lining. The helmet's body is mostly free of crazing, the visors however, show moderate crazing. There are no additional holes in the front of the helmet body. The satin lining is worn and frayed, otherwise the helmet is in very good condition. The storage case is in very good condition complete with all closure straps, buckle, and carrying strap.
