Title Bavarian NCO pickelhaube plate
Nationality German
Period c 1895-1914
Price £45.00

This is a typical private purchase piece, die-struck in gilding metal with a light gilt wash, with screw post reverse as opposed to soldered loops on issue helmets. It would have been worn on the infantry or dragoon helmet by an NCO or perhaps an 'einjahriger' volunteer/officer candidate.

The helmet would have been constucted of hardened black leather and there would have been a brass spike on top with brass peak trim and spine.

The crown on one of the lions is missing, but otherwise it is in quite good order, the gilt wash being somewhat rubbed on the highlights.

Prov: from the J.R. Gaunt & Son Ltd. Pattern Book Archive, sold at auction by order of the National Army Museum, London.

Bayonet arrived safe + sound this AM Sat. Special delivery excellent again. Worth the few extra bob. To be honest it was better than I dared hope. I usually avoid polished bits like the plague!! Your price was a bit fierce!! - but a great marking I lacked... Please email me anytime you have anything that might be of interest.
