Title Saxon Weimar-Eisenach infantry helmet plate
Nationality German
Period c 1870
Sold

This plate (12cm W), worn on a picklehaube, was introduced in 1861/2. In 1867, the regiment (raised in 1702) became the 5th Thuringen Infantry Regt (No 94 in the Prussian Army List); thus this plate was worn for a fairly limited period as, on its absorption into the Prussian Army, a variant of the Prussian line regiment eagle was worn instead.

One of the lugs is missing at the back and two small holes have been punched in its place. There is some minor wear and tear to the points, but, generally speaking, the piece is in quite good shape. It is of two-piece construction, the centre being brass while the star is white metal.

It is a very rare helmet plate, but priced according to the damage.

Just a short note to let you know that I have collected the Police fur cap this morning from the Post Office. I am really happy with it, and for sure I will give a thumbs-up to your service. This was the first item I ever bought from you, and I hope it will not be the last.
