I purchased this Prussian Guard Officer helmet in 2008 at the MAX Show from an older collector friend who was downsizing. I found the case separately and use it with the helmet.
Helmet was worn by one of 4-Units:
- 5.Garde-Regt. zu Fuß Garde-Korps (Spandau) (Guard Regiment on Foot)
- Garde-Füsilier-Regt. (Berlin) Garde-Korps (Guard Fussilier)
- Garde-Pionier-Bataillon (Berlin) Garde-Korps (Guard Engineers)
- Eisenbahn-Regt. Nr.1-4 (Railroad/Train Reg't)
Only 2.4% of the German Army wore this type of helmet.
