    A thread from other forum

    As someone who used to have this attitude a little while ago (to which I have learned from), this man seemed to be very arrogant, hostile, and stubborn. He was incredibly rude to Alan and it makes me angry to see that he attacked him instead of heading his advice. Why can’t people just listen...

    Thanks Amy, I will not to use this as much as I used to for confirmation any more. I just always thought that it is good to get a second opinion on things and that was what I was doing. I understand now that that was wrong and I appreciate that you pointed that out. Now begins my research phase...

    On the helmet shown above, there have been obvious repairs to it, such as the front visor strap has been repaired with some sort of plastic, and the visors have been restitched. The cockade on the side is wrong and belongs to a Württemberg haube and it is also missing one on the other side. The...

    Yes, you are 100% correct. I’ve purchased 2 books in the past few days, Feldzug 1915 and the pickelhaube: vol. 1, and have been waiting for their arrival. Going through this experience has taught me that I need to do more research and need to wait a little while before I buy another Pickelhaube...

    Hi Amy, I take full responsibility for not consulting you guys before purchasing the item. Also I understand that this is in no way the fault of the seller, it is my mistake. I had found the auction when I was randomly browsing all of the eBay’s for pickelhaubes with 12 minutes left and when I...

    Yeah. It’s not his fault in anyway, I just didn’t think that the chroming wasn’t going to affect the value too much, it was my fault for bidding on something I wasn’t sure about.

    Yeah that’s what I thought. I’m buying a nice ek from the guy. He recently came into a $140,000 collection and has some serious stuff. Also, check your inbox

    Is his name Jan? And also should I negotiate for the Prussian haube?

    Trust me I am into it. I have bought 3 things in the past few weeks and I got a lot of stuff coming and going. My goal is to open a shop one day and end up as successful as stores like regimentals. Thank you guys so much for the help, you helped me dodge quite a bullet! On another note, I got a...

    Very true, thank you guys, it has been canceled and it’s going to the second highest bidder (he payed 2 euros less then me).

    Württemberg Pickelhaube

    He told me this was how he got it a long time ago, he said if I don’t want to buy it he can sell it to the second highest bidder, is it worth the risk, or should I pass? It was 600 euros

    Sounds bad. I’m not convinced that they’ve been replaced but you are correct. It has been polished. Not looking great but it’s not as bad as the Garde helmet from last year

    Do you think it’s been refinished or painted? Or just replaced outright?

    Haha. I wonder how much that was... Well I think that the chinstrap and cockades could be repros potentially, but I think the rest is original. I may be wrong but this is my opinion

    I checked the plate out. I’m still not sure yet, but I believe it’s original, I could be wrong but that’s just my opinion. It’s also named. It comes from a 70 year old collector with this kind of collection, I don’t think he’s the kind of person to put reproduction parts on helmets.

    I almost did. Got carried away by something else and missed it. I would have, as my max for a helmet right now is 600 USD. Now I'm going for the Württemberg, customs, or the reserve
