3. Thuringisches Infanterie Regiment (Nr. 71) Pickelhaube

Post by ww1czechlegion » Thu May 24, 2018 8:32 pm

Hello,

Here's one I picked up recently from a more unusual regiment to find.

Nicely issue stamped: "3 Th.J.R. 71" on back visor. But unfortunately there is No Battalion Stamping. :(

1914 dated on rear visor and inside, with Maury & Co. maker mark, and a nice size "58" marking as well.

Came with an original chinstrap that has flaking to the surface finish.

Unfortunately no kokardes were with the helmet.

Jim Turinetti's book "Imperial German Headgear (1884-1914) Field Guide" shows the 2nd & 3rd Battalion's being stationed at Erfurt, and wearing Prussian Kokardes. The 1st Battalion was stationed at Sonderhausen, and wore the White with Blue Stripe Kokarde for Sonderhausen.

Best Regards,

Alan

Giving up trying to post photos for now. This is a real hassle and problem when it is not taking the photos after I've edited them for size...

Hi Steve,

Thanks for wondering about the photos. Sorry that it's messy with some extra photos. I can't seem to edit them out.

It was sure nice to meet you in person at the S.O.S.! Thanks for taking time to visit with me!

Best Regards,

Alan

Alan,

When you get it sorted out I would like to get a clean picture of the marking for the list. We have three different examples of JR 71 but none of them similar to what you are describing. The pictures you have put up are not usable and I know you are working on it. Seems like a wonderful find!

Many thanks for your nice comments Edwin, Steve, and Ron, I appreciate it!
By member Edwin: Will you complete it by adding original kokarden?
Thanks Edwin, yes, I'll complete it with original kokarden. I'm currently in need of a good National kokarde, as I've used up my last ones I had a while back on helmets that were missing kokardes. I have a nice Prussian kokarde that I could put on this helmet since there is not any Battalion Marking in the helmet. I'd love to find an original Schwarzburg kokarde to put on it.

It would be a real privilege to visit you and see your fabulous collection in person Steve!

Best Regards.

Alan

I'll attach another unit mark photo for Joe. Hopefully this one will work out o.k. to add to the list.

Why would you want to bury photos of your nice collection in a thread titled as this one is, for a specific marked pickelhaube? :-k

Is it too difficult to start a new thread titled: "My Collection"?

Maybe we could have a separate category titled: "Collections" in the newer "Pickelhaubes" subsection of the forum? It would be easy to find each person's collection thread, rather than burying it into this unrelated thread.

Hi Alan, it seems I missed this thread somehow… But wow, what an interesting helmet it is. I hope you can find those kokarden to complete your great helmet!
Making a seperate thread about our collections would be great indeed. I also don't understand why these pictures are thrown into this thread about one specific helmet. I sure don't mind looking at these pics of your great collections, but please make your own specific threads about your wonderful collections people…

Hi randolpho

Most helmets were from the States. But they are drying up so now I buy them from all over the world and have my fair share of being cheated like seller never sent parcels or sent fakes and they r good. They refused PayPal and I lost money. So that I'd the learning fee that I got to pay.
