Two Austrian Dragoon helmets

Post by J.LeBrasseur » Sat Sep 19, 2020 5:21 pm

I know they are not spiked, but these are so cool, I own another one, but these two cam along in the last week or so and condition is great.

First picked up the NCO model, I think it is NCO? Alan from the forum was kind enough to sell me that one from his latest haul of helmets.

Then the opportunity came to me for this super nice Officer version with case and cover. There is most of the original frosting on the sides, simply a stunning helmet.

Those are spectacular! What is the significance of the Lion defeating the Serpent? Very unique motif!

James!

That is simply outstanding! Tough to find helmets in that great condition along with the officer's case! One heck of a noteworthy addition to your collection!
