Re: Grenadier-Regt. Konigin Olga (1 Wurtt.) Nr. 119 EM

With the older Model 1871 hauber sans spike. (Anyone have a silver threaded spike they can sell me?) Both helmets are Kamer struck to the 119th on the back visor.

Re: My Kurrasier and JzP M15's

Gentlemen, If I may opine, what I think we have here is a matter of tastes and a lacking of solid information. I agree with Bruno in that any KR/JzP helmet marked before 1915 and not having painted steel grey fittings or wappen must have large cockades to be authentic. That being said I do not agree...

Picklehauben, the top is made of metal and very well machined. It has a bayonet lug which matches up with this top. I, also, have never seen anything ...

If you are still in the City we have to get together for coffee!

If your friend needs my helmet to model something off of I would be happy to let you borrow it.
