Note: This helmet comes mounted with a high-quality, fluted service spike and eliptical base. See below for the same helmet mounted with the fantastic Leib-Gendarmerie Parade Eagle.
Officers of the Life-Cuirassier Regiment
wore nickel plated helmets with the trim,
studs, spike base, chin scales, rosettes
and helmet plate gilded.
The spike matched the metal of the helmet.
The helmet plate, chin scales and cockades
were of distinctive patterns unique to this regiment.
The helmet plate is the old Prussian eagle pattern.
A crowned eagle rising with wings displayed
with a sword clutched vertically in its right talon
with lightning bolts clutched in its left talon.
