PRUSSIAN JAGER ZU PFERDE ENLISTED MANS LOBSTER TAIL HELMET.
A good large size 59 all steel skull lobster tail helmet for a Jager Zu Pferde regiment. The blueing to the skull thin, field grey removable spike and clover leaf spike base with matching unique style Jager Zu Pferde front plate, complete with its original steel grey fitted dark brown leather chinstrap with a set of the correct large size pickelhaube national and state cockades. To the interior its nine tongued leather liner all intact. Clearly dated ‘1916’ to the upper inner skull plus a maker’s mark of ‘DAMASCHKE’, to the back peak marked size ‘59’ with a separate number ‘5’, this could either indicate a size 59½ or 5th Jager Zu Pferde.
