GERMAN WWI SAXON GUARD REITER ENLISTD MANS LOBSTER TAIL HELMET.
One of the rarest configurations of any of the lobster tail helmets of WWI is the unique all steel skull helmet for the Saxon Guard Reiters. The inner edge trim is marked ‘G.R.’ followed by a series of numbers. The skull has the raised crease running down the back of the dome. Standard curved peak, which is identical to all other cuirassier helmets. No damage to the skull but evidence of surface rust restoration, with its large stamped steel field grey Saxon front plate, both large size State and national cockades, original chinstrap. To the interior the original green paint remains behind the front peak and traces of the black paint to the inner rear lobster tail. The helmet is with its original light tan leather liner, which is complete with its original drawstring. A rare Imperial German helmet.
