Title Oldenburg infantry helmet plate
Nationality German
Period c 1868
Price £275.00

This was worn by the 91st Line Regiment after its absorption in 1868 into the Prussian infantry, formerly having been the Duke of Oldenburg's infantry regiment. This was a two-battalion unit and the only infantry that Oldenburg possessed. This plate was worn right up until 1918, also in a pressed tin format.

This appears to be made of gilding metal with its nickel centrepiece constructed in two parts. Typically, it has threaded post fittings on the reverse, indicative of its early date, together with its size (slightly larger than the last pattern plate).
One threaded post on the reverse has had a solder repair.
Its condition is excellent - it appears to have seen little use.
