    Brunswick Model 1897 Landwehr Officer's Helmet. Measuring approximately 10 ½-inches to the tip of the spike, this helmet is ink-marked size "57" on the interior of the crown. The impressive Landwehr eagle plate is mounted with an exceptionally detailed multi-piece construction Brunswick blue enameled cross, with a detailed galloping horse/crowned pillar on a red enameled center, all applied to a convex silver starburst with Landwehr cross immediately below. The entire plate is mounted to the helmet via two threaded posts and nuts. No additional holes are in the helmet body. A gilded-brass spine runs from the edge of the neck shield to the spike base. The 4 ¾-inch tall spike is mounted to a round base and affixed to the helmet via four star-head split pins. The front visor is trimmed in gilt brass; the neck flap is untrimmed. Flat chin scales are mounted to the helmet with simple rosettes. Both cockades are present. The helmet is complete with a wide leather sweat band and green silk lining. A rare and impressive helmet.

    Condition: Excellent. Showing little signs of exterior wear. The interior shows only modest signs of use. From the collection of J. T. Hamrick, M. D.
