Ok. I'll try. :)

Few weeks ago I bought this plate in Kaliningrad. Not good condition, but anyway rare item.


(I Will try to show you it after restoring.)

P.S. 100 years ago this town had name Konigsberg. At now it is Russian Federation.

No one of them isn't magnetic.
Look here is difference between iron and brass after 100 years.

This helmet was found in Lithuania near Daugavpils. 8-)

Fascinating relics! Thank you for posting them. Leone, if your helmet is the "after," then mine is the "before." However, Bryan's helmet appears to be a more exact match and helps to explain the screw:

Hello Leone,

Very cool photos. I posted a couple of pictures of the exact helmet, right down to the screw through the center of the wappen. Most of the screws on examples like this that I've seen seem to be machine screws of the type that would not normally be used by manufacturers of pickelhaubes. The screw on my example appears to be a very old machine screw with a fine thread. The only brass piece on my helmet is the wappen, with the front peak trim and spine left off and no holes in the helmet for their installation. The spike on mine is steel with the fake rivet impressions around the base. Same green paint as well. Thanks for posting this.

Semper Fi.

Bryan.

Hello.

It's not maybe for the feldzeichen, it is for the feldzeichen on felt shako.

For the medal, the coat of arms are from the city of Liège in Belgium. So as I can read it's written "Liège 1926 or 28?". I think it's a religious medal for an episcopal congres, a pilgrimage or such a thing. Try to read the text...

Best regards.

You have a helmet plate (wappen ) from JR 33, 5 und 6 komp or JR 34. Obviously, they must have been on the ostfront in Latvia at Kurland.
