This is an exquisite officer pickelhaube from the Grand Duchy of Baden. It is known as 1. Badisches Leib-Grenadier-Regiment Nr 109. It was founded in 1803 during the time of the Napoleonic Wars and was garrisoned at the capital city Karlsruhe where it was attached to the XIV. ArmeeKorps. This was one of the oldest and most elite of the German infantry regiments. It would have been in the same arena as the Prussian 1. Garde-Regiment zu Fuß and the leading infantry regiments of Württemberg, Bavaria, and Saxony.

Exterior:
The leather body of this spike helmet is in excellent condition with only very LITTLE spidering. The chin scales are brass as are the officer stars. The remainder of the furniture is silver. This includes the front visor trim and the back strap which is slightly raised from the leather body. The spike is of above average height.

The wappen bears special attention. Whereas the Prussian helmet for 1. Garde-Regiment zu Fuß has an Eagle, Baden’s emblem was the Griffin. Like its Prussian counterpart the wings of the griffin stretch to the Baden and Reich kokarden. A word on the Baden kokarde. It is the lovely style as used by Saxony. The Reich kokarde is of the standard Prussian style for contrast.

The final detail is the center of the griffin which has a silver sunburst on which we see a red enamel cross with gold trimmed detail.The red enamel is in sparkling condition.

Interior:

The interior of the helmet has a highly detailed brown leather sweat band. Attached to this we see a complete and nicely conditioned complete silk liner which shows age and one very small area of shredding. All of the original hardware is present and penciled in is the size 55.5.

This is an all original helmet in breathtaking condition to one of the most elite infantry regiments. Other helmets from this regiment in similar condition can fetch between $10,000.00-$15,000.
