    Mecklenburg-Schwerin Dragoon Regt 17 - Vizewachtmeister - mounted

    I saw that one too. It's a great rare photo. Very sharp and crisp with the details. They used a high quality lens to shoot it. Were you the lucky buyer?

    Assistance needed with 3-Cavalry Lance Pennants

    I apologize in advance if I am "beating a dead horse" by asking this. Does anyone have any further thoughts on what these are or when these pennants could have been produced? I say this in light of them not glowing under black light, and the threads burning and not melting when I checked them...

    Help needed to ID Adrian Helmet

    Thanks for your replies gentlemen! It's my understanding that this helmet was part of a small group of WW1 deacessioned items from a museum that were put up for sale, as I bought 2-pickelhaubes as well from the same source recently. I notice the "1918" written on the sweatband with what looks...

    Mexican Pickelhaube

    This is one of those ugly "BASTARD" or "P.O.S." helmets made in the past 20-30 years, by someone residing somewhere in the United Kingdom. Wrong helmet body shape, klunky repro metal fittings that are all wrong, and the ill-fitted puckered up leather sweatband that is too big for the shell body...

    Trouble with Posting Photos & Server Error in For Sale Section

    Hello, I inadvertently added 4-duplicate listing in the Pickelhaubes "For Sale" Section. (Please remove the duplicate listings.) I kept getting "Server Error" messages at the top of the screen when I was trying to do the posting. And I did not realize that the system was actually taking my...

    Anyone in to German military bugles, please?

    Here is a helmet and bugle from a family that brought them to the U.S. The wife was German, and she married a U.S. WW2 veteran. Sadly I was not able to purchase either items, and missed out on them. The helmet was not issue marked. The bugle is not issue marked, only maker marked. Best...

    Early Leib-Gendarmerie Helm?

    Yes, someone went to a lot of expense making the helmet I had and sold as a repro. I also had a fake enlisted Saxon Garde Reiter helmet that came from the same source, and I sold that as well as a repro. Neither helmet were of the cheap modern made in India type that we see on today's market...

    Early Leib-Gendarmerie Helm?

    This is a regular Kurassier helmet body. The front visor is the Kurassier style. A Leibgendarmerie front visor has a peak or point to the center of it. I had an old reproduction of this type of helmet that I found a year ago in September. It did not have the special Leibgendarmerie Eagle on...

    Assistance needed with 3-Cavalry Lance Pennants

    I also wanted to add that I don't like the distance of the hole from the top and bottom of the pennant on this Bavarian example I have. I think the top/bottom holes are placed too far into the pennant, when compared to the original WW1 or Earlier Pennants that other members have posted here...

    Assistance needed with 3-Cavalry Lance Pennants

    Hi Tony, Sorry for my being late in getting the 3-pennants black lighted. They Do Not glow when black lighted. We had a package of brand new white athletic socks which we tested as well for comparison. The socks glowed/lit up as expected to do so. And the Threads do burn, and not melt. The...
