Dear members

A friend of mine Peter Suciu suggested I join and post on this forum. I have been asked by the widow of a close friend to authenticate and value for insurance three Pickelhaubes in his collection. As Rex and I are predominantly British Sword collectors I am struggling with this request and need help. The three helmets are described as follows:

No 11 in the Collection has been described at German Ersate Spiked Helmet Light Tropical Issue (Boxer Rebellion) from Colony of Kiaochow German services. There is a printed label also attached that was inside the Helmet stating “.German Erstats Spiked Helmet Light Tropical Issue. Perportedly taken in Boxer Rebellion. Very rare. Helmet is from the Colony of Kiaochow. German Service in China”. It has odd stitching running down the back is this correct.

No 66 in the collection German Prussian Wurtemberg State brass plated Helmet. It is missing the side rosettes and has crazing.

No 159 if the collection, Officer’s Peninsula Waterloo WWI Hannover Regiment (German) Fusilier Regiment Prince Albrecht of Prussia Helmet.

I will attach the pics in three posts.

Any assistance you can provide will be gratefully received.

Kind Regards Cathey

Interesting stitching. It's plain to see that a section has been removed to reduce the size. The neck guard should be as wide as the visor. It's considerably narrower.
