Here is the Pickelhaube, my granduncle had before and during WW1 with its WW1 canvas cover.
MarcusVery nice family heirloom.My Mother's family lived in Berlin.They moved to the U.S. in the 1950's.Your helmet reminds me of a picture my Aunt has of my Great grandfather.It is a studio picture of him standing by a chair in full dress uniform(wearing his pickelhaube). I live in another state now,but next time i visit i want to make a copy of it,along with military pictures of my Grandfather durring WW2.
Here is a picture of my Grandparents wedding picture.It is I believe early 1930ish.
kirk1978Ive seen several of the Pickelhaubes here in the US but have never seen one of the canvas covers. Very interesting!!
ShyHave you had that as yours for long?
BTW, Denise has come through with a tracking number...I will let you know via e-mail when item arrives to my home.
