My Morning Find

Post by mauihiu » Sat Sep 12, 2015 6:02 am

I just picked up these this morning.

Jager zu pferd, Wurttemburg, Saxon Train, Prussian Pioneer, Troppenhelm, erzatz Prussian, and Prussian Inf.

Not bad for a mornings work! :D

Would love to get some feedback, and I will post close ups a little later.

Great helmets!!! I would love to have a find like this in 1 morning. Were these helmets found at a fleamarket or with a private collector?

Greetings

Pickelhaube,

They are from a private collection, I am lucky enough to have a good friend who needed to downsize!

Well done ,they look fine.
To buy a complete collection takes the fun of hunting away ,but it would be a sin to let them slip away.

Would you post more closeups including the interior?
Cheers!

Wow! That's really something! Now I know where NOT to shop for Pickelhaube: Wiesbaden. It looks like you've cleaned the place up pretty well, from another collector or not.
I'd take 'em by the dozens if I could. :)

:D Ron
I really do need to know more about this....

You seem to be lucky on many accounts:

Having friends!! knowledgable friends who are down sizing, and right time right place!!!!

Great pieces.
