The PickleHaube (literally, pointed bonnet) also called a "Pickelhelm", was a spiked Helmet worn in the 19th and 20th centuries by German military,Firefighters, and police.

This is one of only two patterns of military Pickelhaube that carry the unique combination of a visor and spike base that do not match.

A round front visor with a cruciform spike base is found only on Hessen Pickelhaube and a squared front visor with round spike base as worn by the Wurttemberg Landjager Korps shown here to the left who were a form of field police.

Historical Period

This style of helmet was originally invented in 1842 by King Frederick of Prussia. The style may have been inspired by similar helmets worn by the Russian army at the time.

Similar styles were worn by the German military, firemen, and police force during the 19th and 20th centuries.

Although typically associated with the Prussian army, the helmet was widely imitated by other armies during this period.
