Need help finding info on the Inf. - Regt. Von Voigts - Rhetz (3. Hannoversches) Nr.79

I need some help finding what type of plate the 79th Von Voigts Rhetz Infantry regiment use, currently I portray the 73rd Fusiliers, but would like to make a change, and I'm currently struggling to find where I could buy a reproduction plate to use for the 79th.

IR79 wore a standard gilt Line eagle Wappen.

Go to this link, scroll down to IR79

You can find an original gilt Line eagle easily.

Yes, classic line eagle.

This is one of mine, found in the family barn, in the village of Bierbergen, near Hildesheim, late 2019. It cames with wearer picts, Militärpass and much more other documents of the guy.

Wilhelm ADENSTEDT was wounded in Congy, early September 1914 during the first Battle of the Marne. He was in the 10/JR79:

Two pictures of his military service time at the 4/JR79 (1906-1908) in Hildesheim:

Philippe, that is so cool to have all the photos and documents to go with the helmet! That certainly looks like the same helmet in that bottom photo!

Great photos.

Interesting that he was a Kaiser Prize winner. The 4th Company won the prize in 1906 so I assume that is when those photos were taken.
