PRUSSIA – KUGELHELM WITH PARADE BUSH – ONE YEAR VOLUNTEER – IDENTIFIED

SKU: 33-238

$3,995.00

This is a very handsome Garde-Fußartillerie-Regiment One-Year-Volunteer’s (OYV) kugelhelm. Foot artillery regiments (rather than field artillery regiments) developed later in the German Army. Its first regiment was created in 1864. The Garde-Fußartillerie-Regiment was founded in 1865 and garrisoned in Spandau. The regiment was assigned to the Gardekorps.
The helmet’s leather body is in very good condition and shows minimal wear. It exhibits one small spot where a loss of leather can be noted. Its furniture is all gilt, with the exception of the silver-toned Garde Star. The state and Reich’s kokarden both are present, so it is a post 1897 helmet. The trichter is attached to a pearl ring, which may indicate an OYV’s helmet. A very full white, horsehair, parade bush is attached to the trichter.
As we look at the helmet’s interior, we immediately can tell it is privately-purchased. It has no depot marks. It does possess a normal enlisted man/NCO’s leather liner. The liner is intact, with the exception of the leather sizing thong. It displays the multiple leather tongue arrangement. In the interior is a label that lists the size as “58.” Furthermore, the tag identifies its original owner. The following words are written on the tag:

“Graumann
Einjährig=Freiwilliger
8. Batterie”

It is a fine, identified kugelhelm with its parade bush. It hails from the most elite Fußartillerie-Regiment.
