Belgian haubes/headgear wanted

Post by stuka f » Mon Feb 05, 2018 1:35 am

Hey guy's, if you ever pass by any Belgian headgear, please let me know.
Looking for any kind of 19th and early 20 century headgear; police, firefighter, customs, etc...even civilian services.

Got the original die which was used to made the lion crest! That is as close as I can get to the original one so far...
One of the die's can be seen here, in front is a copy of the crest.

Does anyone know of a reference book (or website) that details Belgian headgear? Very hard to find information or even photos.

Hey Francis,
thanks!
It says Sapeurs Pompiers de la ville d'Anvers. In French.
Flemish on Flemish/Belgian governmental services only appeared (far!) after WWI.
The transitional period was in the two languages.
For example; the Leopold orde (medal) that had his motto only in French before 1952.
My guess for this helmet is 1850/1880.
