GERMAN WWI PRUSSIAN ERSATZ PICKELHAUBE.
A fabulous example regimentally marked of the ersatz canvas over cork pickelhaube, very large skull, no size markings but possibly size 59 or 60. The exterior canvas covering all intact without any tears, breaks or damage, slight discoloration. The base edge of the pickelhaube covered in field grey green leather. The helmet was never fitted with a back strap, deep brass non removable spike, circular spike base, Prussian front plate, original chinstrap with correct brass fittings, excellent condition national and Prussian cockade. To the interior its 9 tongued liner all intact with its original drawstring. Profusely stamped to the rear back peak with two stampings, one which appears to be ‘J.R.137’ with indistinct markings with ‘16’ at the end, the most pronounced marking good and clear ‘1.B.R.J.R.60’. A superb example of this rare ersatz helmet.
