Re: Just Arrived --- Spineless Felt Ersatz

Nice helmet John , congrats.

I think it’s safe to say that this chinstrap was not born with the helmet , I came to this opinion by comparing the wear on both liner and chinstrap. Wether it is an original , the jury is still out.

Re: EM’s OR N.C.O'S SAXON GARDE-REITER REGIMENT WITH PARADE-

Thanks Glenn ,
As far as I know ,
There was no coating over an EM helmet ,they made the tombak shine like gold , you can imagine the elbow grease that went in after a march in the rain.
The officer helmets have an extra gold finish, to polish that would be a shame coz the finish will come off.
