MY TWO LATEST FIND - ONE AT A TIME

Haven't studied it thoroughly.
Two sets of holes, someone cut a side for the guard and the guard plate has been there for a long while.
The hole punch at the two of the liner fingers is interesting.

:o :o OH nono, there is no hole punch on the liner fingers, there is indeed hole punch on liner fingers on the other felt helmet that I have listed separately. Sorry got them mixed up. 8-[

Are you going to leave any helmets out there for the rest of us?

Nice find! But as said, you should leave at least some helmets for the rest of us Amy! :wink:

Congratulations on your 2 very nice latest additions! :bravo: :bravo:

Congratulations Amy!
I saw one of these once, many years ago, but did not buy it.
It was in the days before the internet and some "expert" told me that they never used stitched leather around the bottom edge of a felt or cloth Pickelhaube.
I could kick myself for believing some of the advice I heard in the past.
The words never and always don't apply very well in this hobby --- there are "always" exceptions!

Indeed. Our hobby is always full of surprises. I learn more from this forum than the books. Thank you Brian for hosting this forum. \:D/ [-o<
