M95 Filz Helm

Here's one of the most common felt pickelhauben; it's a M95 Prussian without metal trim on the visors.

Re: Can you see what's special about these two M95 Prussians

It's indeed chopped cardboard or paper, mixed with glue or as we call it papier maché. It's the same type helmet as the ones I started this thread with.
The regimental stamp is a nice bonus of course. Well done sir!
To answer the question if they are unique to IR29... I don't think so...
