    Unfortunately, Andreas that member has passed on but he had a fabulous collection. We are very lucky that the photos he posted are still on the forum. You can count on the fact that his helmet is the real deal, a true example.

    help to identify this Pickelhaube for officer from Hesse-Darmstadt
