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.

testimonials

Today received railway truncheon in great nik! Superb item gone to a very good home. Many thanks for your patience with this exercise ... Well done.

Having received the beautiful medal that has been the subject of many recent phone calls, I am absolutely delighted with it. More importantly, the research you provided into the military backgrounds of all those involved made it all the more poignant. Thank you for your highly professional and friendly help and advice throughout the transaction.
