Prussian Guard Artillery Enlistedman's Helmet

Above:  Wartime Prussian Guard Artillery Pickelhaube with grey metal fittings.  This one is not marked to a specific regiment so it could be either Foot Artillery or Field Artillery.   

Above:  Left side of the Prussian Guard Artillery helmet.  The left side is for the Lander cockade, black and white for Prussia.  The ball top ornament represents an artillery projectile and is removable.  Aside from the ball top device, the helmet is the same as an infantryman’s, which have spike top ornaments.
