    Imperial Russian 10th Infantry Regiment Spiked Helmet. Tall black polished leather body and visors with brass flaming bomb "spike", cruciform base and rear trim. Leather-backed convex chinscales. Silver metal front plate with the Russian two-headed eagle and regimental number "10" applied in brass at the bottom of the plate. Initials "F.V." branded on each side of the helmet under the chinstrap bosses. Rather crude leather sweatband and hessian lining. Presumably the soldier's name is written in ink on the hessian lining. There is some loss to the black finish on the rear of the helmet body and the body itself is uniformly crazed from heat or age. The visors are a bit misshapen. The leather backing of the chinscales appears to be a refurbishment, otherwise the helmet is in very good condition.
