Pickelhaube. M1915. Saxon ORs. Interesting Provenance.

A particularly historic, un-tampered, M1915, leather Pickelhaube for sale. In 1918,the Saxon pickelhaube brought back from Germany, to England, by Lieutenant W.E.Jones, 2nd Royal Engineers.

The M1915 Saxon pickelhaube shows just minor wear and age, and appears to have  been well cared for. The helmet-body retains its two original holes for the Saxon front-plate, (grommeted in steel). Both original V-shaped leather wedges are intact. The M1915 pickelhaube retains its matt grey, oxidized-steel, Saxon-cockade with minor rust-bubbling visible under the oxidized finish, the remaining steel-fittings show just light age-toning; the removable spike in grey, oxidized-steel, shows slightly more age.

The pickelhaube has its correct (original) Reich-cockade positoned to the right side, and the rare, white & green, Saxon-cockade to the left. The chinstrap is a good, heavy original. The 9-finger lining to the pickelhaube is original vegetable-tanned lamb skin leather showing almost no wear or age. Good, clear manufacturer’s ink-stamp "Ernst Siegemund Dresden 1915" and size"57" to the interior helmet-shell.

The pickelhaube also bears an ink-stamp to the rear visor, "B.A.XII.10' - Bekleidungsamt XII.10" (12th Army Corps, 10th Company). The front visor shows the  inked-name  of the officer who found the helmet at the end of the war: "Lieutenant W.E.Jones - 2nd Engineers"; Lieutenant W.E. Jones is listed in the London Gazette (12th November 1917).  It should be possible to research this officer further.
