This is the helmet of a Bavarian General Adjutant. Often you will see your of general
adjutant and general doctor in the same breath.
The difference is in the chin scales. These are
flat. A doctor's chin scales are convex. The
normal Bavarian general has silver fittings. This
one has gilt and gilt fittings are only used for
general doctors and general adjutants. You can see there
is a small tip out of the center shield of the enamel,
but that the wappen itself is extremely ornate in
detail. Unlike many Bavarian wappen, the small crowns on
top of the Lions are also pierced on this example.
The cruciform base has very large stars. You can
see the two cockades. The Reich's cockade is a single
ring model at 55 mm. The spike is fluted and unscrews
for a feather Busch.
