French 1845 or 1858 Dragoon Officer's helmet

Post by mignot » Mon Mar 05, 2018 12:37 pm

Hello forum,

I know this forum is dedicated to Greater Germany, but there is no English language forum for French militaria, so I thought I would try here. I am looking for a French 1845 or 1858 dragoon officer's helmet. If you have one for sale please do let me know.

Best wishes,

Cole

Thanks for this! I am hoping not to pay the Malvaux markup and would prefer to pay in the dollar. But I did not see a single example at SOS. I need to go to Ciney, I suspect.

Off to Paris next week, maybe one will turn up.
