German, Pre WWI, Bavarian M1868 Infantry Officers Raupenhelm

This item is listed for historical interest only. It was listed on our site previously but has been sold and is no longer available for purchase.
Sold for: $1295.00
Item #37244

Original era manufacture. Introduced in 1868, and worn by the Bavarian Army until the adoption of the Prussian pattern pickelhaube in 1886.

Officers quality helmet with a black bearskin comb, highly polished leather body, and nicely gilded metal trim. The interior displays a blue silk lining with a wide calfskin leather sweatband with a scalloped edge.

The Raupenhelm displays a few scuffs to the its surface, the front visor stitching has come loose, and the rear of the helmet, while very pliable, is pinched a bit. This is easily remedied with the insertion of padding or a display head.

A very, very presentable example in sound condition for its age.
