Collecting Pickelhaube – Military Memorabilia

Collecting what???  Pickelhaube are mainly collected by military memorabilia collectors and are nothing more than the ceremonial spiked helmets that soldiers from other countries wear.  The spike normally resembles a spear.  Many of you have seen them before, and the German Army always comes to mind when we do see them.

Although many existing examples can be dated to mid nineteenth century Prussia, the spiked helmet has its origin in Russia who invented them at around the same time period.  In the ceremonial versions of the pickelhaube, the front plate is also highly decorated with the unit’s regimental province or state.  The pickelhaube is still worn today by many military units, most notably the Swedish Royal Guard.  www.kaisersbunker.com

Unusual Collections – Trucks & Nails

People collect many things from stamps and coins to some other very interesting and sometimes very usual things.  Here are a couple more collections of unusual collectors and their collections. 

R. S. "Dick" Kemp from Hillsboro, New Hampshire collects old trucks, mostly Mack Trucks.  His collection of about 90 trucks includes some from as far back as 1916.

Frank C. Horwath of Joliet, Illinois started collecting nails when he was 14 years old.  Today he has over 15,000 types of nails from over 40 countries.  His collection includes a nail from the home of William Ellery, one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence.
