    Description

    Imperial German Civil Officials Spiked Helmet.

    The exact designation of this helmet is unknown. The shield on the front plate looks vaguely Swedish but the crown appears to be German. Gilded brass decoration including the front visor trim, front plate, chinscales, spike base and spike. Front plate mounted by split pins in larger holes which have been filled in. Flat chinscales held by simple rosette bosses. 10-finger leather liner.

    Condition: Very good. With the typical crazing to the surface of the leather; the liner is worn and displays small areas of loss, still the helmet retains a nice shape. From the collection of J.T. Hamrick, M.D.
