Delve into the rich military heritage of Imperial Germany with this exquisite Saxony Pickelhaube, designed for a Reserve Senior NCO in an infantry regiment. Crafted with meticulous attention to detail, this pickelhaube exemplifies the highest standards of quality and condition.

The fine leather body, of superior quality and immaculate condition, is complemented by brass fittings throughout, including a distinctive sunburst wappen adorned with a reserve cross and the silver-toned Saxon coat of arms. Notably, the closed crown distinguishes it as a non-officer wappen.

The brass chinscales, non-removable spike, and unique pattern of officer Reich and State kokarden further accentuate the pickelhaube's exceptional craftsmanship and historical significance. The interior features a dark brown leather sweatband and a rust-colored silk liner, bearing the marks of honorable service and wear.

Despite its moderate use, this pickelhaube remains in rock-solid condition, with nearly all original hardware intact. A missing clip at the top does not compromise its integrity, enhancing its authenticity as a genuine relic of Imperial Germany's military history.
