    JR 92 - has any one ever seen a wappen like this

    Well, the original wappen might have been questionable but the topic has brought out some fantastic helmets. Thanks all for sharing your wonderful examples. All the best Jeremy

    JR 92 - has any one ever seen a wappen like this

    Thanks Bruno Once again, a lovely haube. So from what's been said, both the overlay and the wappen could be genuine although what else is the sealing wax covering I wonder? I'm not, but just incase anyone is interested, here is the link on the Saleroom website Brunswick Pickelhaube . Oh and of...

    JR 92 - has any one ever seen a wappen like this

    So, that shows my ignorance. If it's a duchy wappen, it shouldn't have the FR, no matter if its a reserve or if it has the fuerst bandeau? You live and learn. I wasn't considering bidding but just found the wax on the back an inteesting alternative to super glue :) Gentlemen, once again thank...

    JR 92 - has any one ever seen a wappen like this

    Hi all A German auction house has a rather beat up JR 92 haube for sale at the moment and just out of curiosity I asked for some more detailed pictures of the front and back of the wappen. Naturally there are 2 sets of holes in the shell, but has anyone ever seen the back of a wappen like this...

    Lovely helmets Amy and both in fantastic condition. I just love those wappen. Hope you’ve left some Hanoverians out there for the rest of us 😂

    Opinions on officer Spike?

    I agree it could be poor lighting and bad photography but all of my officer spikes have a semi-circular or rectangular cut out in the base where the end of the rear spine fits this one doesn’t appear to have one. As I don’t have that many examples not sure if that’s a problem or not.

    Hannoverian Items Wanted

    Just a bit behind Stirnpanzer but I’m looking for anyone ‘downsizing’ with any spare shoulder boards for the Hannoverian infantry, artillery, jäger and pioneer regiments ( ie not the cavalry, I had to draw the line somewhere :) ) If there are any Gibraltar arm bands I’d be very interested as...

    The Prussian Issued Landwehr Wappen 1842 to 1895

    John Thanks for your detailed review of the wappen. I must agree the detail on the reverse leaves a lot to be desired and the Für leaves a lot to be desired, but the K is all there, just my appalling photographic skills 🙁 I’ve attached a new pic. All the best Jeremy

    The Prussian Issued Landwehr Wappen 1842 to 1895

    Tony, looking at your picture of the line officer got me to wondering. This is a plate I got years ago which I always thought had either been 'messed' with or was a copy (or possibly both) as it had both the bandeau and the cross. It looks good from the front but is noticably heavier than my...

    Small Ads Rip-Off

    In future I’ll only use friends and family to pay friends and family - blindingly obvious really. Amy, thanks but I spoke to the bank and they weren’t interested as I’d used friends and family. Cheers all Jeremy

    I think I’ll just put it down to “experience” and move on. Thanks all for your comments. All the best Jeremy

    All good advice. This is the last time I’ll use friends and family unless it’s a friend or family. Tough lesson but I really should have known better. Cheers Jeremy

    Philippe you are so right. I rushed into it and the language was definitely an issue for me. What do they say? If it’s too good to be true, it probably is! All the best Jeremy
