A trade a few years ago with our late friend and forum member Karel

Post by ww1czechlegion » Fri Nov 20, 2020 10:54 pm

Here's a helmet I never got around to posting. It's been one of my favorites since I worked out a trade with our great friend and forum member Karel, "Adler 1", a few years back in time. Sadly he passed away much too young, this past July, as many of you will recall.

I had found a couple of nice ersatz bayonets out of the woodwork, and ended up trading them to Karel a few years ago, along with a little money to boot on my part for this magnificent condition helmet.

Karel had an extra Saxon Eigentum Pickelhaube for either the 100th Regiment, or a Saxon Pioneer Regiment.

As with most of the helmets in Karel's top notch, magnificent collection, it's in super squeaky clean, pristine condition.

My photos aren't the best of quality. I should have used a flash on all of them.

Enjoy!

Best Wishes,

Alan

Photo of interior. Looks to be in almost "unworn" condition.

Best Regards,

either the 100th Regiment, or a Saxon Pioneer Regiment.
Alan: very hard to see on your picts.
If chinscales are white: LGR100
If chinscales are yellow:
PB12
or PB22
or 7 + 8C / ER2 (Eisenbahn Regiment 2) till October 1912, then after October 1912: 7 + 8C / ER1 (Eisenbahn Regiment 1)
or very small saxon detachments in the 2C/ Kraftfahr-Bataillon or in the Versuchs-Abteilung des Militär-Verkehrswesens in Berlin
or 3C /TB1 (only between 1899-1907) (Telegraphen Bataillon 1).

I thought we answered this question here:

viewtopic.php?f=9&t=14035

I understood that the helmet could only be Eisenbahn if the chinscales were brass.

The chin scales are the rare flat silver version. So the helmet is indeed 100th Regiment.

Many thanks to everyone for their very nice comments, I appreciate it!

Best Wishes,

Alan

Alan;

That's a terrific helmet! One that I'd be very happy to own. I've had a 100th Regt. OR's Wappen sitting in my parts drawer for years hoping a Wappenless helmet would surface,

One lives in hope.
