    Default Wurttemburg Infantry Officer Helmet

    Hello,

    Here's a Wurttemburg Infantry Officer Helmet with storage case that I picked up around 8-years ago.

    The mercury fire gilding is really nice on this helmet. Looks like some insects had fun with the green and red lining on the underside of the visors.

    Helmet would have been worn by an officer from one of the following Infantry Regiments: 120, 121, 122, 124, 125, 126, 127, or 180.

    I look forward to your comments.

    Best Regards,

    Alan

    Know nothing about these but it sure is a beauty Alan. I have to add one (a basic one) to my collection one day.
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    Wonderful specimen Alan!

    Judging by the scales, this is a line officer? Is the spike detachable for a paradebusch?

    That is a great looking helmet.
    Congratulations Alan.

    Thanks for the excellent questions Glenn! Yes, it has flat chinscales for Infantry. The gilt/brass fittings configuration would have been worn by one of the following Infantry Regiments: 120, 121, 122, 124, 125, 126, 127, or 180.

    The 119th and 123rd Regiments wore all silver fittings on their helmets.

    Yes, the spike is detachable. Most officer helmets have a removable spike. Only the 120th & 123rd would have worn a black color plume. The other aforementioned regiments did not wear a parade plume, only the spike. (The silver fitted helmets of Regiment 119 wore a white plume, and the silver fitted helmets of Regiment 123 wore black plumes for parade.)

    Best Regards,

    Alan
