Title 1908 pattern officer's picklehaube cover
Nationality German
Period c 1908
Sold

This is the peace time manoeuvre cover introduced in 1908 in order to distinguish friend from foe on manoeuvres, hence the red band (it is reversible). The basic colour is khaki shot through with a reed green element in the linen. This is distinct from the war time version which had no red band, therefore relatively rare.

The condition is excellent, near enough ex-factory.

Thank you for the bayonet... I am absolutely thrilled with it. Look forward to more purchases from you.

I received the silver Verdienstkreuz this morning. Your swiftness and dedication was very much appreciated and, though the envelope arrived with a Post Office sticker saying it had been found open or damaged, the cross was unharmed and looks beautiful. Thanks for your time.
