Fus Artillerie regiment nr 9

Post by Spiker » Tue Jun 12, 2018 8:07 am

Ersatz helmet made in 1914 but equipped with M15 feldgrau parts.
The brass sideposts were left to go dull.
The helmet still has an original piece of German newspaper in it (and original sweat :-s )
There is also a small size label and a makers label with date 1914.
A superb felt Ersatz pickelhaube kept in perfect shape even without spine or visor rim.

Excellent condition. I have a Prussian pioneer filz made by the same company with similar paper labels.

Felt still perfectly shaped indeed. A great exemple. A date on the newspaper?

Classic example with that unique Filz Ersatz dome shape.

Superb-on-purple photography as always Ed.
