GERMAN WWI PRUSSIAN REGIMENT 74 ERSATZ PICKELHAUBE.

An ultra rare helmet from WWI being the all one-piece felt ersatz helmet, regimentally issued to Infantry Regiment 74. It is generally very unusual to find any ersatz felt helmets that is regimentally marked, this helmet is not only regimentally marked but it is to the well known 74th, one of the regiments that was entitled to wear the Prussian plate with the Waterloo scroll. The skull is absolutely perfect, no back spine ever fitted, non removable brass spike and circular spike base with matching coloured front plate with the Waterloo picked out in black. Original chinstrap with brass buckles. Prussian and State cockade. Lining all complete with its original drawstring. Clearly stamped into the interior back peak ‘I.R.74’ with a good clear date of ‘1915’. Some light restoration to the fitting of the liner to the helmet evident.

IMPERIAL GERMAN 1862/67 MODEL GUARD DU CORPS ENLISTED RANKS HELMET.

An extremely nice condition enlisted mans helmet of the 1862/1867 model. All brass skull in fabulous condition, minor ripples, an ordnance soldered repair to the raised rib that runs from the back side of the eagle down to the start of the lobster tail. Standard Prussian Guard front plate with central black Guard eagle. The helmet has all of its edge trim in white metal and all of its raised white metal rivetts for the rear lobster tail. Front stepped peak, maker stamped underneath the front peak ‘Jaeger’ and stamped ‘G.D.C.5.C’ underneath the Prussian State large size cockade. The helmet is with both its Prussian and national cockades, some paint loss to the State cockade. Surmounted with its Guard Du Corps eagle, the wings have been slightly squashed together, there are hardly any Guard Du Corps enlisted mans helmets on the open market that have not been restored either at the time by ordnance depots or by later collectors. With its original very skeletal style of crown. Evidence of a repair to the Guard Du Corps eagle as the helmet is viewed from the back, the seam between the right hand wing of the main body has been solder repaired with minor indentation to the tip of the wing and to the upper neck of the eagle. However the helmet has no extra holes to the main body or behind the front plate. Correct large size domed Cuirassier style chin scales with all leather interior fitted. The liner is intact, which has had some restoration.

GERMAN WWI COLONIAL SERVICE VETERANS UNIFORM.

A beautiful condition large size uniform in the light corduroy tan of the colonial uniforms, both tunic and trousers collar, front trim of the jacket and turned back cuffs all trimmed with blue with twin Colonial Service red, white and black shoulder boards. All white metal buttons with the colonial style crown fitted. Above the right hand pocket are five loops for a long medal ribbon bar with a pair of loops below the pocket for a First War award. To the lower right sleeve as the tunic is viewed is the beautifully machine embroidered insignia of what is known as the Petersflagge. During the Third Reich period this would have been worn with a swastika armband of which there is thread evidence where it was once placed and also clearly viewed is the outline of the colonial breast eagle attached to the upper left hand breast as the tunic is worn. A fine example of this uniform can be seen being worn on page 378 of the excellent work The German Colonial Troops 1889-1918. The indication that this tunic has six buttons only and straight pocket flaps plus the Peterflagge insignia without Swastika could possibly date it to the early 1920’s, pre Third Reich period and then utilised during the Third Reich period with the addition of the swastika armband and breast eagle. A very good website entitled German Colonial Uniforms Exists on the internet, with huge in-depth detail with accompanying photographs.
