Comparing Pre-1915 to post-1915 Pickelhauben

Post by Tony without Kaiser » Sat Apr 19, 2008 9:04 pm

I thought it would be fun to start a thread where we can show comparisons of Pre-1915 Pickelhauben in silver of brass, beside the same Pickelhauben in the M1915 steel fittings.

Posting rules: please only post photos in this thread if you have the pre-1915 and the post-1915 side-by-side. And please make the photos 800 pixels in width.

To start off, below is a Model 1895 Preußen marked to Reserve Infantry Regt 31 with an unmarked Model 1915 Preußen.

Well I have to admit I was going to say the same thing as Chas and only show the one other one I have which is the Hessians, but took Tony's advice and will show more, it was actually fun getting them all down, besides, gave me a chance to dust them off :D

Hessian OYV or Private purchase and a late model M15 with rounded spike, still looking for the early fluted type!

Here are three from Bruno. I'll let him comment on them; when you comment Bruno, I'll bump your posting it to a position above these photos and edit this out. The IR92 examples were difficult to post, as I was wiping tears from my eyes... Image

P.S for James, looky! 800 pixels wide! Image

My thanks to Tony for posting these pictures. Both bavarian helmets are marked to 8 Fd. Art. Reg. Note the difference in front plate sizes. The 1915 Oldenburg helmet is well marked OJR91 inside the shell, which is noticeable for a '15 model. The JR92 is a 1891 model, with the correct cockade for that vintage. Its rear visor markings have been posted earlier on the forum. Congratulations again to Tony for initiating this great thread.
