WW1 German Prussian Artillery Kugelhelme- 67th A.R With Shrapnel Embedded In Top
A WW1 German Prussian Artillery Kugelhelme with markings to underside of peak for Artillerie Regiment 67.
So called the 'Kugelhelme' due to its Artillery troops specific ball top ( Kugel being German for ball ) this untouched piece displays a beautifully gilt frosted Prussian front plate with brass fittings & interestingly a small piece of shrapnel still lodged within one of its spike base retaining pins. Its boiled leather body has survived exceptionally well with no damage & leather chinstrap original. One of the chinstrap studs has been field repaired this clearly , with the shrapnel shard, having been a well field worn helmet in the early days of WW1. Interior liner is also in good order with faint ink stamped size & the Artillerie regiment marking in rectangle '67AR'. On inspection of the front plate insertion there are no extra holes.
