Rare Prussian Helmet + Cuirass of the Garde Du Corps Imperial German 1870's-1918
Up for your consideration is a Rare Prussian Helmet and Cuirass of the Garde Du Corps. Used by the Imperial German Army from 1870-1918. Genuine period selection. Condition of the helmet is very good. The front plate is for a NCO officer and reads "Mitt God Fur Konig Und Vaterland 1860". "With god for king and fatherland 1860". There are some extra holes under the eagle base and behind the helmet front plate. This was not uncommon due to the mission of these troops and rotating assignments required changing ornamentation. Under the right cockade are the letters G.d C.L. which is correct for a true Guarde helmet and not a Spanish rework. The leather liner has some tears. The Helmet is marked 57 for the head size. The helmet also shows some early repairs. The Curiass is in very good condition. It is missing the smaller leather belt piece that adorns the front bottom and the padded liner. The leather for one of the shoulder straps is heavily worn and very loose. The rear shows some minor dents. The inner housing is stamped 6 which is probably a size reference. Measures 20" tall. 15" wide and about 15" when assembled. A very rare and fantastic looking set. Guaranteed authentic.
