This helmet was for sale here and on ebay awhile back. I took a chance on it and was very happy when it turned out to be a legit KR2 helm. The before pictures are here: http://pickelhaubes.com/bb/viewtopic.ph ... &hilit=kr2" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
I'm still working on it. The rosettes are reproductions but everything else is original. I purchased the near mint cockades at this year's SOS. I'm looking for chinscales. May have to go repro on those too, until a good set comes along. The interior looks basically the same as in the before photos. In this case, it was necessary to polish all the brass as the rust remover polished everything it came in contact with. It will all tarnish with time. Please excuse the photo quality. I'm still working on lighting and metalhelms reflect quite a bit.
