Hi everyone,
I recently acquired this. Not a rare helmet but absolutely untouched, and condition is lovely. Named to a soldier (Venutov?..) in DR14, which was based in Colmar (Elsass).

Bruno,

Dr. jur. Hans Venator was born on 2 December 1889. He served with Dragoner-Regiment Nr. 14 from 1912-1918. He was commissioned from the rank of Vizewachtmeister d.R. to Leutnant d.R. on 25.09.14. He survived the war and was a city legal councillor by profession. In 1935 he was living in Wangen near Munich. He is listed in the 1940 Munich city address book as a tax advisor. He appears to have lived to a good age as he was still listed in the Munich telephone book until 1969!

Regards
Glenn

Glenn you really impress me. It is the second time that you track a helmet owner for me back to when he was born.
Many thanks,
Bruno

Amazing that no-one has attempted to 'clean' the brass and therefore damage the gilding over the years...a rare find!
