BADEN – PICKELHAUBE / SPIKED HELMET – ENLISTED MAN INFANTRY – PRE WW I
Pre WW I Infantry pickelhaube from the Grand Duchy of Baden present well with a nicely condition black leather body with pre war brass furniture and original leather chin strap. The appropriate state and reich kokarden are installed and do not appear to be replaced or altered.
The interior is complete with original leather liner lacking only the sizing thong. There are no depot markings on the rear visor, so this may be a private purchase helmet by a soldier who took great pride in his appearance and equipment.
We don’t often see pickelhauben for enlisted men as nice as this regardless of the state.
Baden had one of the larger military contingents of Imperial Germany.
