Whats the difference between a Prussian infantry Pickelhaube and a Prussian Reserve infantry Pickelhaube,is there a difference or are they all the same.

The helmet shell would be the same but the badge (helmet plate) would differ with the resrvists lacking the motto and having a resrve cross mounted on the eagles breast. Often reserve shells will be hand me downs, refurbed etc and sometimes have a standard badge (as war progressed) because all the pre war regs and differences simply could not be maintained.

Pickles and accoutrements is a huge field and not an exact science!!

Hope this helps.

(oh and in theory a reserve helmet cover would have a R before the regt numeral)
