Thanks Brian. Found this museum, which I’ll visit when I can finally travel to Europe again. Military and police sections. http://www.armeemuseum.de/fr/expositions/musee-bavarois-de-la-police.html I am pretty sure there were Bavarian State Police. Wappen seems to have been there as original. Peter

Bavarian Police Pickelhaube

I just received my Bavarian Police Pickelhaube - which I like a lot. Would appreciate some help with a couple questions and maybe some help in reading the label inside. First question - what year would this have bee made? I am thinking in the same era as the M1895 helmets? What is the difference bet...

Shakos and Cockades

As an about to be new owner of a Prussian M15 Shako I am curious as to why they only have the national cockade on them and no state cockade on the other side? Is it because they often have those field badges attached on top?
