Mecklemburg

Since Dragoner helmets seem to be popular, here is another one. Uncleaned, untouched (chinscales were never detached), and 100% original in every respect.
Named in the visor to Dragoner H Breckwoldt I Zug (1st platoon, if I am correct).
Regimentally marked inside the skull with white paint, as is common for Mecklemburg DR helmets. Alan found one with very similar markings a couple of years ago, which he was in the process of restoring.

Aaaahhh, would love to have one of the 17th or 18th Dragoner in my collection, and a Kürassier nr 2 and a Ulanen Nr 9.
these guys stormed in Halen against Belgian Machine guns, infantry an dismounted Lancers and Guides.
Dream on man....dream on....
