Thanks Amy, I will not to use this as much as I used to for confirmation any more. I just always thought that it is good to get a second opinion on things and that was what I was doing.

Re: Württemberg Pickelhaube

On the helmet shown above, there have been obvious repairs to it, such as the front visor strap has been repaired with some sort of plastic, and the visors have been restitched. The cockade on the side is wrong and belongs to a Württemberg haube and it is also missing one on the other side. The chin...

Re: Württemberg Pickelhaube

Yes, you are 100% correct. I’ve purchased 2 books in the past few days, Feldzug 1915 and the pickelhaube: vol. 1, and have been waiting for their arrival. Going through this experience has taught me that I need to do more research and need to wait a little while before I buy another Pickelhaube. I a...

Yeah. It’s not his fault in anyway, I just didn’t think that the chroming wasn’t going to affect the value too much, it was my fault for bidding on something I wasn’t sure about.

“Untouched” EK2

Very nice KO piece, got it from a big EK collector (he had a knights cross, 1813, a few 1870’s [one had a WW1 spange and 25 yrs of service], some screwbacks, etc.). Got it for 80 usd.
