    Garde unit history

    Does anyone happen to have a copy of the unit history of the GDC? I am trying to find a man by the name of Lüert in the 2nd squadron and unfortunately cannot find any source for one online. Any help would be appreciated!

    Got the patch in and I think it turned out all right. Not as good of work as our resident expert Brian but it's not bad for a first try.

    What are common red flags in fake pickelhaubes

    Getting better pictures of the inside of the shell would definitely help, but for his asking price it's definitely worth taking a better look at.

    What are common red flags in fake pickelhaubes

    Most of the metal work doesn't look too bad actually, if those it could actually be worth buying for the parts.

    Is it possible that the original owner transferred into a different company?

    What are common red flags in fake pickelhaubes

    It sounds like someone painted it. The chinstrap lugs are typically either brass for M95 helmets, Grey for M15 helmets or silver for certain units that had silver fittings.

    What are common red flags in fake pickelhaubes

    A good indication of fake helmets is a lack of detail in the metal work especially on the wappens (front plates), and the leather and liners will look brand new and often times the liners will look puffy compared to work 100+ year old helmets. I honestly have yet to see a fake helmet that looks...

    Prussian officer

    A small update on this long overdue project, I've sewn everything back together and I'm currently patching the tear in the skull and I thought some of you would get a kick out of my method of patching and reshaping the sunken skull. This has sat this way for about an hour now and is pretty steady.

    Garde Du Corps NCO tunic

    Would anyone by chance have an appropriate marksmanship lanyard button that goes under the shoulder boards as well as the shoulder board buttons? I'm looking for ones marked extra fein without the assman "A" on them.

    I think it's safe to say that the boards were put together at some point haha

    Strange shoulderboard

    It is possible that it's just a different maker or maybe the photos just aren't the greatest. Either way I agree that I see no sense in the construction of the boards.

    Strange shoulderboard

    I had noticed that it was similar to the airship cypher but as I stated earlier the cypher on the board appears to have a bit more flair and slightly different design on the L than the one from germandaggers.

    Strange shoulderboard

    Thank you for that information! It is also named on the inside to a man named kammermüller. I was hoping he'd be easy to track down but it's not proving to be very easy.

    I agree I have seen those styles of pips on beamte shoulder boards and on judiciary style uniforms.

    Strange shoulderboard

    Good evening gentlemen, I was digging around online ans came across this board on a uniform that I cannot identify, it looks similar to the luftschiff cypher but seems to have more flair on the L than what I've seen and also seems to have rank pips that I believe would belong to someone that...
