This one is not bad. There are some damages badly repaired. It was smudged with polish near the metal parts.
What's the metal band you can see near the interior wappen's holes?

Zeb,
How would you repair the damaged portions of the felt part of the pickelhaube? I appreciate any help you can provide.
Best regards,
John

John, the cracked body felt is complete.
Two or three sewing stiches with a thin tread of the same color of feld may be sufficient..
A little glue only on the edges of the crack. To finish a bit of felt dust to close externally the crack.

Thank you for that bit advice on a repair on such a Pickelhaube. I will put the information in my memory banks in case I require it some day.
Best regards

I have submitted a few restorations of felt helmets on the restoration thread.

I am presently working on one with SEVERAL TEARS that I have yet to finish.
