Very nice! :bravo:

Can I copy your picture of the mark and put it on this list? http://pickelhauben.net/articles/Kammer_Marks.html" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
It is far better than the picture that we have. On the right-hand side it seems as though this helmet was reissued to a reserve infantry Regiment but I cannot see the number. Can you? Sometimes if you just wet the end of your finger and rub it across the mark it will jump out at you. Sometimes not.

For Alder...: Why I love this regiment? This is its great European monarchical history:

It all starts with Victoria of Anglettere, daughter of Marie-Louise-Victoria of Saxe-Coburg-Saalfeld, who married his cousin: prince Albert of Saxe - Cobourg - Gotha on 10 February 1840.

Victoria was the last sovereign of the House of Hanover which reigned over the British Isles and their dependencies since 1714, while the electorate of Hanover was passed to another branch of the House of Hanover because different inheritance law. After his death, the British Crown passed to the House of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha (British name of the House of Wettin) represented by his son Édouard VII and her grandson George V. The latter, under pressure from public opinion, changed his name considered too German in world war I period, in Windsor (1917). This House was extended by his son Edouard VII, his grandson Georges V, his great-grandsons Édouard VIII and Georges VI and its great, the current Queen Élisabeth II.

In 2004, the European monarchs and former monarchs descended from Victoria are: Queen Élisabeth II of the United Kingdom and King Harald V of Norway, King Charles XVI Gustave of Sweden, Queen Marguerite II of Denmark, King Juan-Carlos I of Spain, King Constantine II of the Hellenes (deposed) and the Ier Michel King of Romania (deposed). The pretenders to the thrones of France, of Serbia, of Russia, of Prussia and of Germany, of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha, of Hanover, from Hesse and Baden are also descendants.

As promised, my JR 95.

The markings on the rear visor: IR 95, IVB, 14C, 56, 1888,1893 1 This translates to Infantry Regt 95, 4th Battalion, 14th Company, size 56cm, date of acceptance 1888. Condition 1. I believe that the 1893 represents the year in which this piece was retro fitted with M91 side posts. Even before WW1 this piece was already 26 yrs old. It is in remarkable condition. The rear spine has no slider vent. Note also, the high profile characteristic of these pre 1895 helmets.

I pursue with a "nature morte"

Paul Lapp made its classes in the Ersatz battalion of the 95.JR, a Thuringian regiment.
To me it very well could then be poured into the Reserve Infantry Regiment Nr. 32, Thuringia also, to go to the front.
It would therefore be from Arnstadt and would have been seriously wounded in August 1916 in the region of Soissons where he stood with the 113.D.

Hello
About the pickelhaube of jupiter 66, it is not possible to say if this is Saxe Coburg Gotha or Saxe Meningen
We can see the second marking after IR95 is 3BRIR82
this 3th battalion is composed of soldiers of the two duchies

RIR82 (I Armee, IV Reserve Korps, ResD22)
I Bat Sonderhausen
II Bat Erfurt
III Bat Cobourg Gotha/Meningen

In the IR95
Bat I and III was Saxe Cobourg Gotha
Bat II Saxe Meningen

Bernard

Brian ;
so you want an enlisted shoulder strap
to go with your helmet ?
Not an officers epaulette

I think that I have officers shoulder straps for I R 95
also a pair of epaulettes
but no extra enlisted shoulder strap .

I could be tempted to add an officer JR 95 board to me collection Steve but I am going to have to wait until this years trip to Florida and the SOS are paid up and some funds saved. I will keep that offer in mind. I was just looking at the Dragoner 19 officer you sent me today as a matter of fact, :) That of course, is the helmet seen in our forum logo.
