Got my second Belgian M 1886 just now.
Apparently coming from a old Brussels collection that was sold recently.
His particularity is that it still got the retailer label inside. But couldn't find any more details about that retailer yet...
Anyway still glad I managed to find this well preserved service helmet.
Seen here next to the parade model.

Very nice finds, especially because of the harsh climates they were worn in. Thank you for posting pictures of these unique helmets that are 100+ years ol.
Best regards
