Green-olive tin helmet

Post by Francobritishcollect » Fri Oct 12, 2018 5:45 am

Dear All

My first (helmet) post with this green-olive Bing tin helmet which I had the chance of picking up recently.

I have tried to get some clear close-ups of interesting details, perhaps not with great success. Will try to do better next time.

Any queries are welcome

Alex

Interestingly, the chinstrap buckles are or the exact same colour as the rest of the helmet

Very sharp front standard ligne infantry Prussian eagle. It must have been moved at some point by his former owner to place the reservist cross. Shades of original black paint can be seen on the side of the right wing of the eagle showing that the helmet was spray-painted in green over the original black

Very nice helmet, but it's not a Bing. It is a RVDH manufacturer.

Just started blindfolded archery, best thing I've ever done, if you've not tried it. You don't know what your missing.

Excellent piece! I have never seen one of these with a Reservist wappen before and we are talking 30+ years of collecting. Fantastic.
