James:

Nice collection.

Stangely enough, I pulled my lone JZP off the shelf last night to re-fresh my memory re. the maker (C.E. Junker).

It's the twin of your helmet #1. I've always liked the JZP design. A bit more elegant than the Kurrasier design.

These helmets always remind me of a good friend of mine who passed away about 10 years ago. It was a standing joke between us as he could never pronounce Jager zu Pferde correctly (or at least he pretended not to) mangling the German just to get a reaction from me.

Thanks for posting these great looking helmets.

Was that Jim Godefroy Steve? I also noted Jim could not pronounce Jäger zu Pferde. I miss Jim :sad1:

Actually Tony, it was Ted Wigney. Ted liked to give me the gears about collecting German stuff so he'd deliberately mangle any German term I used. He particularly enjoyed mispronouncing "Jogger zoo Ferdiee".

..and yes, German was not Jim's forte. I too miss him. He and I did many deals over the years. Jim was fun to deal with and he was very passionate about collecting. Too many of these fellow collectors have passed away. I miss getting together at the Ottawa and Montreal shows. It was a fun time.

Thanks Steve. I remember Ted's name.

That is a nice line-up James, especialy the Reserve in silber. Very nice. Here are mine:

Thanks everyone, the Silver Reservist in the middle was my late brothers, he loved that helmet.

I remember when he got it 25 years ago or so, he had to borrow money from me to get it, my wife almost killed me!

Marvelous. You will have that forever I'm sure. How about some larger images of that one?
