Some versions of the Pickelhaube worn by German artillery units employed a ball-shaped finial rather than the pointed spike.The most common plate design consisted of a large, spread-winged eagle, the emblem used by Prussia.Different plate designs were used by Bavaria, Württemberg, Baden, and the other German states.The use of the Pickelhaube spread rapidly to other German principalities.Oldenburg adopted it by 1849, Baden by 1870, and in 1887, the Kingdom of Bavaria was the last German state to adopt the Pickelhaube.During the second half of the 19th century, the armies of a number of nations besides Russia (including Colombia, Chile, Mexico, Portugal, Norway, and Sweden) adopted the Pickelhaube or something very similar.
