This is a great looking example. Has a great "been there" look but not too beat up at all. The front plate has a few stress lines and a ding at about 2 o'clock (See last photo). A nice, dark, even patina throughout. Reverse shows the hook and the puppy paws. There is a maker mark visible that looks like W H SMITH. Very cool belt buckle.

While he is famous as a raider he did also fight in some conventional engagements including the Battle of Jutland...

Lovely steel Jaeger Zu Pferde pickelhaube. These mounted light infantry were similar to dragoner units and the helmet is patterned after cuirassier spiked helmets. The blued steel is in line with 1915 regulations and this example is made by C.E. Juncker and dated 1916. All metal parts are period and appear to be original to the helmet. Light age wear as shown in attached photographs. I do believe the chinstrap is a reproduction...

Very interesting short length of tarred rope recovered from the wreck of the Invincible, the first of seven Invincibles which was sunk in 1758. This piece came with a signed certificate of authenticity from the Invincible Conservation group. I would not have but the previous owner trimmed the COA to fit in the mount but it is done and it fits well so I will include the mount with the rope and certificate. Riker mount is about 21x16x5 cm. Neat item from a famous ship.

Nice example of a Prussian enlisted pickelhaube spiked helmet. All original parts. The red, white and black cockade looks to have been repainted. There is a tear in the liner (See 3rd and 4th photos) and two tongues have torn where the tie string goes through. The plate has two extra holes which is odd because it is doubtful this was "upgraded" to a Prussian EM. The rear spine prongs are gone but it is firmly in place, being held by the back screw and pressure from the spike assembly...
Very attractive framed photograph. Shows 12 men in full uniform. Caption attributes these gentleman to the 4th Battery of the 5th Field Artillery Regiment , Landau 1908. Even if discharged, fellows like this with heavy equipment experience were invariably called back to serve in WWI. No damage to the photograph (Please excuse the light reflection in my images). Frame shows evidence of light wear but is still very nice. Something is written on the back in pencil but I can't make it out...
