    What would you know about victory? I killed a she-wolf in her den, armed with only a knife. I escaped the Caughnawaga Indians who sought to burn me alive. And, I was the sole survivor of a shipwreck at the Battle of Havana. So you'll excuse me if I choose not to follow your advice." ―Israel Putnam speaking to a Continental Army officer at the Battle of Bunker Hill.

    A little worn and the leather looks like it is crazing on the visor portions but a Nice one(I'm a Baden Fan) This is an M1915 enlisted mans Baden infantry picklehaube. The JR 170 stands for Infantry Regiment 170.
    It is of course missing the cockards and a chin strap. Is the dome leather or steel?

    And just so others here know, the General sent me a PM with a grateful thanks for the assistance given.

    It is in poor to fair condition though, I wouldn't get to hot and heavy for it. Personally wouldn't part with more than two twenty-five or so all in.

    I seriously doubt you can buy a Baden helmet for $225.

    Read my post Steve, that's not what I said. I wouldn't spend more on that one given it's poor shape - it borders on relic. I didn't say you could get one for that. Baden helmets are not too hard to find and much better examples are out there for not outrageous amounts of money. People are free to do what they want with their money but there are way better examples out there and I wouldn't personally, nor would I encourage anyone to spend very much on the one cited above.

    Just to set things straight. In the PM from the General I did mention the condition and showed him what they should look like. Along with the lack of cockards and chin strap I did advise him to seek a better example. But that will not be up to him but another individual looking at this one.
