    Default WW1 US Marine with Pickelhaube, postcard photo

    Hello,

    I got this photo postcard at an estate sale. Just thought it was a neat image. If I am not mistaken, he is a Marine attached to the 2nd Division? The most interesting thing IMO is the Pickelhaube souvenir he is wearing on his head. Might be in one of your collections now, who knows!?

    Believe the helmet is a police one. But neat photo. As a kid I remember there being a photo of one of my great uncles in doughboy uniform wearing a spiked helmet. He brought the helmet, 3 steel helmets, and a kar98a back from the war. I still have the rifle. The spike helmet was trashed during a move, one of the steel helmets was use to haul ash out to the yard, another was made into a planter and the third my dad lost while play soldier in it as a kid. The rifle I still have.
