GERMAN WWI HESSE REGIMENT 116 ENLISTED RANKS HELMET.

A fabulous condition early pattern all leather pickelhaube for the Hesse 116th Regiment. Excellent skull with light crazing, minor crazing to the front and back peaks, both of which are securely attached to the main body, fitted with all of its correct Hessian fittings including its unique style spike. Original chinstrap, correct national red, white and black and a large type Hessian red and white cockade. To the face the Hessian Regiment front plate with the Reserve Cross below, with its original liner, with its correct drawstring. Unusually maker stamped to the interior of the front peak trim. When originally constructed this was one of the very early pattern helmets as the styles changed the early high pattern helmets were cut down, this is an example of that therefore two extra holes have been ordnance filled to the leather and a more up to date Hessian plate fitted at the army depot refurbishment centre. Normally we do not offer helmets that have extra holes unless they can be correct explained. This would originally have been an 1860 form helmet and turned into a pattern 1886. Superb condition overall.
