    Description

    Swedish Infantry Officer's Spiked Helmet. A beautiful helmet owing much to German style, measuring approximately 10-inches to the top of the spike. A large gilded-brass plate is mounted over the front of the leather body on which is mounted a beautiful Swedish national emblem comprised of three crowns set upon a blue enamel shield. The 4 ½-inch tall spike is mounted to a round base and secured to the helmet with four star-head screws. A gilded-brass spine runs from the edge of the neck shield to the spike base. Flat chin scales attached with two threaded rosettes. A single yellow cockade is positioned on the wearer's right. The liner, much like its German counterparts, features a wide leather sweat band and silk lining. Marked by hand size "55".

    Condition: Excellent. From the collection of J. T. Hamrick, M. D.
