At last! EM M95 Garde helmet.

Post by coert65 » Sat Feb 10, 2018 3:51 am

My Garde haube, which was discussed in the E-bay section. The story of me buying it is worthy of a comedy story, but at last
it is in my collection.

I do not know why the pic's are on their sides... Maybe a moderator can put them the right side up.
If you click on them they are the right way up, and I am a noob with computer's, sorry about that. :wink:

Thanks for the nice comments gentlemen!

It took some time getting it here, but I am happy I took the time for it.
It is a very nice helmet, and I am very pleased to be able to get it.

But, I am bitten by the haube virus, next weekend I am going to look at a M15 Tschako, a Prussian Jäger one.....
from the same guy I bought 2 Württemberg helmets from, last year, M95 and M15.

To be continued, as they say!

Greetings, Coert :)

Yes I know, or rather knew, the virus. No use trying to fight it... resistance is futile!

Thanks Jonas, I took your advice and took the time. I was at first thinking it was a scam, but it did pay off in a good way.
It really is a good helmet, the pictures do not show it as good as it is. The gilding on the wappen is so nice!
I am a very happy guy now!

Next week I will be adding a nice Prussian Jäger tschako to the collection, and then I'll be done, at least I say so now.
But all of us know it won't be the last....

Have a nice sunday all!

Greetings, Coert :D
