New helmet

Post by J.LeBrasseur » Thu Nov 07, 2019 4:14 pm

This one just came to me today, outside is typical M95 Prussian uncleaned and unmessed with.

Inside is well marked 6 THIR95 for Thüringen Infantry Regiment 95

Now I know it does not have the Thüringen wappen or Kokarden, I believe this helmet to be unmessed with IMO, and those of us that have been collecting for awhile have seen picture and or Postcards with this regiment showing a bunch of different wappen on their helmets including the basic Prussian.

Please let me know what you think?

James
