Very nice helmet Scott I love those pre 1905 helmet plates with the extra leaves around the shield.

Beautiful piece! I especially like the fact that the cross base hasn't visibly sunken!

Great helmet. I just bought my first helm as well, a Bavarian police helmet. I will post some pics when I get the chance but can anyone tell me which cockades go on police Pickelhaube (it’s wappen and chinscales are silver)
