Prussian Pioneer 1st or 3rd Officers helmet

Post by J.LeBrasseur » Fri Aug 24, 2018 1:24 pm

I am very excited to share my latest find, very nice and hard to find Prussian Pioneer Officer helmet for the 1st or 3rd, as these 2 had the special heraldic Eagle wappen.

Can you tell us more about where the woodwork was, James?...
Besides rarity, this one has the endless charm of unaltered genuineness.

Without getting into to many details, had a lady from South Dakota answer one of my ads, " I got one of those spiked helmets things you are looking for"

Over 12 hours away, so after a few emails back and forth, a deal was struck, both parties more then happy.
