Bruno, he refers to the attachment under the shorter leg of the spike. Sometimes this small attachment does not exist. So don't be obsess by the small attachment.

Indeed 98R. was a Prussian regiment , can you see a shadow of the Wurttemberg wappen on the helmet when it is removed ?
Yes there was the shadow there and the stitching matches that is the front visor.

I have left it on my misery shelf for future discovery 🙄

Wrong visors?

Hi guys,

Found 2 helmets in my Australian house. These 2 helmets have been sitting in my Aussie collection room for a while and I thought they should have square visors with the cruciform bases?

I have a spare one. However, I am in Australia now and the wappen is in Singapore. I will only be back in Singapore in mid Dec.
If till then you will have yet to find one, then you can consider mine. Otherwise, please look around.
