    JR 73 Officer's Helmet

    Back in April I purchased a rather sad looking JR73 officer’s helmet from a German dealer. The metalwork was ok but the shell looked like it had been used for a game of football (soccer) during the Christmas 1914 lull! So, who did I call? Brian The haube whisperer has bought this soft shell...

    Prussian M95 - JR74

    Hello all. This is my latest addition an M95 for JR 74 (1st Hannover). The shell and metalwork (apart from the wappen) seem to be in pretty good condition for a helmet that’s 120 years old. The liner is complete and still supple with no torn holes in the fingers and what looks like the...
