Default My first Pickelhaube

I am new to Imperial collecting and just received my first Pickelhaube and hopefully the beginning of a long collecting career in these helmets and other Imperial pieces.

Photos are preliminary. I will take some proper and better ones later. The Pickelhaube, as you knowledgeable collectors know, is a Baden Pioniere-Bataillone Nr. 14.

I really love the Vulkanfiber helmets. This one shines like black chrome.
