Bavarian Reservist Officer Spike Helmet-This is an incredibly beautiful example. There is a rigid brown leather shell which shows minor crazing only. Same for the brown leather visors, with brass trim present on the front. The spine, spike and spike mounting plate are all brass. The frontal plate has incredible detail. It is gilt finished brass with a nickel silver cross in the center with a shield. Wow! The chinstrap is the brass officer, clamshell type with huge metal buttons on each side. Both of the metal cockades are present; one shows the national colors and the other the colors of Bavaria. The officer style interior features a brown leather sweatband that is in great condition. There is an eyelid type silk liner with a brown leather dome pad. All in excellent condition with minor wear and discoloration from use and age. Inside, there is a pencil mark that indicates the size is a 56 ½. Fantastic!
