    Could This Be Real ? Meck Felt

    And the two posts above are addressed to Adler for his helmet. The helmet in the French eBay ad has the cut out for a wappen using a peg in the photos. Bryan.

    Could This Be Real ? Meck Felt

    Are the M91 side posts secured like this example above, on your felt helmet? If the wappen and posts are of the same type and manufacture as the tin helmets the way your spike is, I would say that your helmet would likely have been produced and assembled by the same factory. Coolest thing...

    Could This Be Real ? Meck Felt

    Does the wappen use a single peg in the center like the snapped together helmets? Does it also use the two wide flanges on each M91 sidepost to secure them to the shell like the snapped together "kit" helmets? I will take a pic of what I mean and post it, but I would love to see what is under...

    Could This Be Real ? Meck Felt

    How crazy is that? That is the exact same steel spike as on this late version of the snapped together helmet in the thread showing a factory where they were assembled. Super cool ersatz variation! I've never seen that before. Bryan.

    Spanish cavalry helmet-franco period post WWII?

    Thanks. Do either of you know anything about these? Am I correct in assuming it is Spanish? I figured Pete or someone here on the site would know something about these. Any knowledge is gratefully appreciated. Bryan.

    Ersatz pickelhaube factory

    Also, on my helmet there is no slot cut into the crown of the helmet front for the corresponding peg mount that would ordinarily be on the back of the earlier manufactured helmets. Just a round hole for the screw that is in it. No front visor trim or rear spine or holes for it either. Like I...

    Ersatz pickelhaube factory

    I have one of these snapped together helmets. No liner left in it, but you can see the spike is steel rather than brass, and the super thin brass wappen is attached with a single screw through the center of the eagle rather than with the peg through a slot like earlier ones. The back of the...

    SAXON PRESSED STEEL

    Hi Amybellars. I have two like this and I will post one below. One is Bavarian and one is a Wurt. Both have a size stamp painted on the rear visors, and both have a corresponding number pressed into the steel inside the crown by the vent holes. The only one I have here locally is the Bavarian...
