Looking for M1860 helmet components

Hello everyone,

I am looking for 1 front visor, 2 rear visors, 2 visor trim and 2 rear spines for two M1860 Pickelhauben I am restoring. If anyone has these parts, please get in touch. The helmets deserve to be brought back from the dead!

Respectfully,

Karl B. :thumb up:

Arran,

I've sent you PMs about the parts. I'd definitely like to acquire them for this Pickelhaube!

Re: Restoring an American Pickelhaube

The helmet, when cleaning off crud on the red of the rear visor, is named. I need to attempt to take photos at different angles to make it out.

Re: Restoring an American Pickelhaube

The helmet, when completed, should look like the one on the right (except with silver fittings). I have sourced a spike base that should work, missing the screw-off spike. A start!

Restoring an American Pickelhaube

I am awaiting this American Pickelhaube in the mail. It will obviously be quite a project but well worth the work no matter how long it takes. I wanted to ask if anyone has leads on parts for it. Maybe it is a long shot, but I figured this is the right place to ask! http://i68.tinypic.com/28int4o.jp...

Model 1842 Officer's Pickelhaube - 9th Grenadier Regiment

Fellow Pickelhaube nuts, I have had to make the hard decision to let go of my M1842 Officer's helmet. I am thinking this is probably the first one offered for sale on this forum. I believe this piece dates to the 1850s, some time after the introduction of the 'Colberg 1807' bandeau to the 9th Grenad...

M1857/60 Pickelhaube

So lately, I've gotten an itch for older Pickelhauben and have gained two examples, an M1842 and this M1857/60. May sound strange, but of the two this is my favorite. Just a classy helmet! I've seen some examples posted on here that were pretty poorly stored over the years and luckily... this one wa...

CDV Image of Prussian Soldier - M1857 Pickelhaube?

So, I was at an antique store today and saw this CDV in a case. I do run across them from time-to-time and if the price is right, I will buy them. I looked up close at it to see if I could make out a Pickelhaube and to my surprise, I saw a very old pattern! The helmet in the photo appears to have M1...

Model 1842 Officer's Pickelhaube - 9th Grenadier Regiment

Hey all! So upon searching the forum, I have found that M1842s are very seldom posted, so I figured I'd share mine with you all. I would imagine this piece dates to the 1850s, some time after the introduction of the 'Colberg 1807' bandeau to the 9th Grenadier Regiment in 1849. No names or markings t...

Re: M1846 Hanoverian Garde du Corps helmet

These helmets are real treasures. That looks like an especially nice one in good shape for the period. Plates are rare but they do turn up. No one has tried to produce a facsimile that I know of. If you have a chance or are even able to remove it, can you show us the kokarde? Its very difficult to ...

M1846 Hanoverian Garde du Corps helmet

This is a piece I recently picked up, thinking it was just an 1840s Kurassier helmet. I was curious though why it had an enlisted spike but an officer's style cruciform base, enlisted style chinscales and extra holes above the front visor. Looking online, I stumbled across a Hanoverian Garde du Corp...

Sorry that the photos are a bit washed out. Only chances I had to take photos with natural light are later in the evening.

Bavarian felt pickelhaube M1895

My latest find, just sitting there at an antique store I frequent! It was a very good price, but the icing on the cake was the 20% for the vendor. One I don't believe I could ever part with! The only issue I notice with it is that a previous owner re-affixed the liner with some glue, but at least th...

Great to see my old helmet again! It's the helmet on the right in the third photo, upgraded by Tony with a nice original chinstrap! To pay a visit to the bunker would be a dream come true! 8)

Re: Grenadier M95 Enlisted Pickelhaube

Thank you everyone for your input! I have been trying to research Grenadier helmets but they seem to be pretty tough to find. Just as hard to find is information on Grenadier Regiment Nr. 6! Does anyone have a similar example?
