Simply amazing. I have trouble comprehending such a large and beautiful collection. One question though--do you not like busbys?

Thanks Neil!

Busby's are something I have really never got into, kind of a mine field I do not know much about.

Have one nice Kinder Busby in one of the photo's but that is it.

Not saying I do not like them, just have no ventured into them, maybe someday???

You're right, your room is a mess!! I volunteer to clean up the room and help you get rid of the helmets.














In all honesty, that's not a mess but it's how a collectionroom must look like. You really have a superb collection.

Nicely done James. A fine collection that reflects quality and condition.

Most could only dream of having a collection like that. :salute:

I've just noticed the JB14 shako. Is it possible to place more pictures of the shako? I've never seen a reservist version .

Hello,

Beautiful !

Just a question about the "Bayern Kurassier's"

1870 oder 1871 marking ?

I'am looking for a 1870 one since a long time, in "a good juice" [-o<

The Ludwig one is dated 1872, no markings on the other one I can find.
