    25th dragoons mantel

    Good evening gentlemen, I mentioned this coat in a previous thread and am now just making the thread on it. I'm looking at acquiring this piece and just wanted other opinions on this as it doesn't have an actual unit mark, I believe based off of the cornflower blue main color and white collar/...

    Garde Du Corps NCO tunic

    What are your thoughts on this tunic gentlemen, is this correct for the garde dragoons? My only concern is the format of the tag on the inside it using the abbreviation for ersatz regiment and not Eskadron. Or do I maybe have it misidentified as dragoons.

    Miscellaneous box

    I have seen many impressive and well organized collections going through some of these threads and it kind of made me wonder if anyone has smaller cases of miscellaneous pieces that maybe don't get as much attention. I have a few of them for different periods, this one is rather special for me...

    Strange wurttemberg plate

    Patina differences in plates

    I just got in another M15 baden plate today and I'm certain this has been discussed before but I find it interesting just how much all our pieces can vary in appearance. Brass is easily tarnished and polished but even painted or treated field gray items very quite differently. I thought I'd post...

    Cyphered M15 board

    This case is pretty much the entirety of my imperial items from my Minnesota collection, most of these items except for the EK2, cockade and US disks came from the same seller, there is also a german map of Verdun. If I'm not mistaken this board is either for one of the bavarian regiments or its...

    Dual marked M15

    Good morning everyone, I'm home on leave so I took some photos of things I don't normally have access to, one of them being this nice Prussian M15 pickelhaube with a stamp of C.J.R 91 and an interesting mark which starts with III L.J.R 85 what would the L be standing for in the later unit mark...

    M15 tchapka

    Hello all, I am interested in the M15 tchapka that is up for sale on the forum here and was wanting the opinions of some more experienced individuals as to the wappen. I have seen examples of standard pickelhauben with slits cut into the leather to accommodate a plate but I have seen mixed...

    Tin Kit pickelhaube

    Hello all, I recently picked up this tin kit helmet and my knowledge on these isn't the most refined. The distance between the two slots for the plate are about 2.5 inches apart. Would the distance for the posts be similar to the plate be the same as a standard pickelhaube? Or were the plates...
