Click on an image to enlarge
This is a great looking piece! It is an original U.S. Model 1881 spiked helmet. This is the version that was made with the black color body which was designed for non-summer use. On the front of the helmet it has the beautiful eagle insignia with the applied German silver Ordnance Bomb applied to the shield which stands for the soldier serving in the Ordnance Corps. On the top of the helmet it has the brass spike. On each side it has the correct brass Ordnance Bomb rosettes. When you turn the helmet over, you see the original sweatband intact and in nice worn but not abused shape. The vent on the top has the maker's marking of the Ridabock of New York and they note that they are the successors to Baker & McKinney. This is a great displaying helmet for the Ordnance Department.
