    Description

    German Helmets: Two Imperial German Enlisted Spiked Helmets and a Brass Fire Helmet. These two enlisted spiked helmets, one Prussian, the other a Baden example, would make great candidates for restoration. Both examples exhibit the typical crazing to the surface of the leather, but both have maintained their shape well. The front visors of each are loose and both are missing the rear visor. One example is missing the rear pewter supporting piece and both are missing their liners and chinstraps. On the plus side, both retain their front plates, and one still has the national cockade present, held on by a chinstrap attachment. A front visor from an officer's helmet is included for parts. The brass fire helmet is complete with liner and chinstrap. The front plate has a large "P" affixed to the center of the front plate and the words "Gott zur Ehr!/ Dem Nachsten zur Wehr!". The helmet body has a few minor dents, otherwise it is in very good condition.
