Mecklenburg-Schwerin: Helmet emblem as of 1866. There are several stories concerning the existence of this new Prussian helmet. According to one anecdote, the Prussian King Friedrich Wilhelm IV saw the prototype of a pointed helmet on the desk of the Russian Tsar Nicholas I (1825-1855) during a state visit, copied the idea and put the helmet into production more quickly than the slow-moving Russians.

Rich trimmings of braid and feathers, as well as high plumes, were to increase their impressive appearance.
