Saxon cockade question

Post by Francobritishcollect » Mon Aug 05, 2019 2:15 pm

Dear All

I was wondering what your thoughts were on those cockades..... Have they been repainted or are they in in a state consistent with normal ageing?

They belong to an OR ersatz helmet. No apparent marking.

Many thanks

Best

Hi,
I'm no expert on Saxon cockades, but both look good to me.
Best regards, Lars

I agree. I think they are good.
Are they magnetic?

Look good to me as well. Is there any sign of the sunburst helmet plate imprinted in the lacquer. That may give you an additional clue that you are dealing with an original Saxon helmet.

Thank you to All for your responses.

The helmet is one of those typical composite helmets manufactured by the State of Saxony and the star has dented the shell in a consistent way. I am therefore quite certain it is a Saxon helmet.

I will check on the cockades material.
