French collector

Post by michmuch » Mon Sep 14, 2015 9:09 am

Hello

I am a French collector, living in Moscow, Russia.
My collection is mostly French, from the origins to the Second Empire mostly, although I make incursions into more modern militaria, as well as other countries, I have a few spike helmets for example.
My current focus is on Second Empire, but I would love to develop my First Empire collection.

My interest in terms of items is into headgear, uniforms, equipment, but also medals and old photos.

I have started a blog showing part of my collection:

Hope to learn here about German militaria, and help anybody with 19th Century French items.

JM

Hi JM,
Welcome to the forum!
I collect imperial German helmets, with occasional incursions into French 19th century headgear...
Here is a recent acquisition: a shako of the 25th legion, 2nd company. 1817 model, first Restauration.
