Bavarian Police Officer Pickelhaube by Erel
click for an even bigger image



A superb example of the pickelhaube of an officer of the Bavarian Police, manufactured by the prestigious Robert Lubstein Company and bearing the "Erel Fiberhelm" brand mark of that firm. The body of the helmet shows light age crazing. The fittings are of a nickel silver style, with the finish of the wappen front plate having sustained wear, leaving the front plate with a darkened brass appearance. The interior shows signs of wear, but the silk lining is complete, as is the wide leather sweatband, which bears the impressed brand mark of "Erel Fiberhelm". Overall excellent condition.
