    Hessen Train Battalion 18 & 25 1900 Issued Pickelhaube

    Here's a helmet I found recently. Thanks to James for his "2nd set of eyes" in helping me check it out before I purchased it. I added the Hessen & National Kokardes. The back visor needs to be re-stitched, but it displays nicely as it is. Looks like there is a penciled name in the forehead...

    Kavalleriemuseum Vornholz

    Hello, Is there any chance that the photos could be restored here? I was telling a forum member at the recent O.V.M.S. "Cornfield" Show about this museum. Unfortunately I could not remember the name Castle "Haus Vornholz", near Münster in Westfalen, Germany. Does anyone here know if this...

    She loves wearing the helms!

    I momentarily did not realize that I had a news article URL address in my computer cache about voter ballot harvesting and stuffing ballot boxes, and a person named wanda who got arrested for doing such, along with some other people who got caught and arrested. The news article nicknamed the...

    New member, old pickelhuabe, looking for info

    You're welcome! I now see the 5th photo you added above shows the full interior/underside of your helmet. Thanks for posting it here. I've seen Hessen or Hessian officer helmets that have the front plate emblem or wappen attached by vertical placed screw posts. But this would be a first for me...

    Kube May 2024

    Hi Mike, I waited earlier this year for a little over 2-month's time period before I received a helmet from Portugal, the Baden reservist helmet that Brian is currently working on getting the dent pushed back out on the helmet body. The seller said they were waiting for "export papers" like...

    New member, old pickelhuabe, looking for info

    Hello, Welcome to the forum and congratulations on your recent acquisition. Your helmet is a Hessen or Hessian Model 1915 Enlisted man's helmet. The helmet body and the fittings appear to be original, including the chinstrap and the two kokardes (colored disks). One strange thing I see is...

They're actually nicer quality photos than some adults I know are able to shoot. I'm guessing that you may have forgotten that you started...

    GdC - who beat me to this one

    Sorry you missed this one Charles. Of course it wasn't me who got it, as it is far outside of my affordability realm. I like to joke and say that I am a "bottom feeder" who simply takes what I can get by finding things out of the woodwork, often times with families who still have helmets and...

    A Hauptmann in IR 64

    Hi Mike, I believe that is stands for "Orden Pour le Merite". Or in other words, he was the awardee of the Order of the Pour le Merite or otherwise known as the "Blue Max" in English speaking collector slang. The various awards received by any given officer are listed beside each of the...
