    Selling my Model 1895; Jaeger Tschako stamped for "Magdeburgische Jäger Bataillon 4." The markings are weakly visible.

    Baden haube- what is the verdict...

    First thanks for all the opinions, it is never fun to have a fake item. I do have reference books ;) and I was fooled, no offense taken (except a little bit maybe but that will disappear with a Rochefort 8). I have it over two years in the collection and didn't post it because of the "what if"...

    Baden haube- what is the verdict...

    Hi Joe, thanks for answering. I photographed the spike next to a 100% original one which came out Verdun. Apart from the fact that the cone doesn't come of I don't see that much difference in shape. Best regards, Michel

    Guard Enlisted Pickelhaube

    Thanks guys, I did add it to my collection. The spike doesn't belong as it doesn't fit ;) So I'll search for one. The most exciting thing what made me buy it is that is from 1914. So it probably went to war. The fact that the spike is not present is possible as it could be lost somewhere...
