Welcome to Snyder's Treasure Trove of Militaria!


WWI Military Helmets


We have a large selection of helmets from The Great War. Many have unit identifications, some are Occupation Era, and there are some very fancy painted Victory Helmets brought back from France and England after the end of the Occupation.


WWI 59th Pioneer Infantry Military Helmet Group


This is a very rare group of items from the estate of a member of the 59th Pioneer Infantry Regiment, 2nd Army, AEF.

This particular unit was formed in Delaware and was deployed to France in the Meuse-Argonne area. Their particular and virtually unique contribution to the war effort involved the testing and evaluation of new and experimental chemical warfare gas masks that were eventually mass produced and deployed to the US troops in the field.

One unusual feature of the 59th Pioneer Infantry was their specific distinctive unit identification. They were indentified by a swastika emblem, which became politically incorrect with the rise of Adolf Hitler and the NSDAP in the years following WWI.  The 59th insignia had attributes completely separate from the Third Reich emblem in that the swastika was yellow on blue with a yellow border, as opposed to the black on white with red associated with the Nazi regime. The 59th was the only other unit besides the 45th Infantry Division to use the swastika as the main charge on their insignia.

The lot comprises a period WWI doughboy helmet with 59th and 2nd Army markings on multicolor camouflage paint. Also included is a complete unit history and roster that details the service of the 59th from the Mexican Border War though WWI.  Each company of the battalion has a separately written detailed account of their movements and engagements during WWI as well as a complete roster of the officers, NCOs, and enlisted men of the unit. Some samples of the content and a map showing the area of deployment in France are shown. (1 -- 2 -- 3).

The helmet is shown from the rear (showing the Second Army insignia), and the inside, showing an intact pad and chin strap, and from the top showing both insignia.  This is a view of the serial number stamped into the rim of the helmet.

Also there is an original hand-signed order from Captain J. D. Bush of the 2nd Army to the commander of the 59th, detailing the transfer of a vehicle during the occupation of Germany in 1919.

This is an extremely rare and unusual lot with supporting documentation, seldom encountered intact.  It would be the centerpiece of any fine collection of WWI war gear.  Delaware painted helmets are extremely scarce and rarely seen.
