    Default Romanian Pickelhaube?

    Hi guys, I'm looking for information about this Romanian spiked helmet. Was it made for the Romanian army, or is it German made in WW1 occupied Romania? If for the Romanian army, which period? And can you show me a photo of the complete thing, with strap and emblem? Thank you!

    Please keep me informed, it is the first one I get to see!
    It looks like it got two front visors mounted on to the helmet....
    Very curious to know more about.

    hello, guys . yes this i think is a Romanian border guard helmet , they were used mainly for this purpose or parade . it was used before the first war and it was still used in the late 1930 , this looks like it was used during the reign of Carol the 1 .

    Great piece of history, as we know, it was not only the Imperial Germans who wore the Pickelhaube....plenty of other countries wore them...some up to recent times ! Can the cypher front badge be found to complete this wonderful helmet ?
    Thanks for showing...
    Prost ! Steve.
