Officer's helmet, Kürassier-Regiment Nr.2, older type, ca. 1867

Has been very well restored.

The helmet in original condition as found in a Museum in the Middle West, USA, purchased and since restored.

The earlier officers' helmets were not nickel-plated like the later ones, and also had a more simple and robust leather liner, without the silk head piece. This is all the easier to restore.

Another very rare helmet from a private collection
Officer's helmet, Leib-Kürassier-Regiment Großer Kurfürst (Schlesisches) Nr.1, Breslau, VI. A.K., ca. 1913
with the special eagle emblem adopted in 1902. The officers of this regiment also had this unique form of
chinscales and cockades. The emblem is the so-called "Friderizianisches Muster" with scroll "Pro Gloria et Patria"

An example of this is also on offer presently for 38.500 Euros
