Just in yesterday Eisenbahn Regt. 2 Reserve or Landwehr e m helmet .
The seller did not have the proper I D on the helmet
so I reached out to Philippe and he replied with the proper I D for this helmet
E R 2 was formed in 1890 and the Eisenbahn troops wore the uniform and
helmet of the Prussian Garde .

Steve, I just looked at the markings on my Eisenbahn M15, It is kammer marked, but to ER3.
So it will not match wirh your helmet, but I like it anyway. A nice M15.
But I also saw, that the pictures of that M15 have disappeared, due to the photobook disaster I guess.

A great helmet from E R 3
I wish that I had a Kammer E R helmet to match up with
what I have .
Eisenbahn unit 4 was a batl only.

Those are beautiful helmets Steve. Congratulations. There are few more attractive Wappens than Prussian Garde Reserve / Landwehr with that double overlay.

I always find it very interesting when you see an M1895 helmet with issue dates in this case 1886 and 1888. So the question is, was the helmet originally an M1887?

Tony ;
Good question .
The body is heavy and thicker , very possible
Let's add another question ;
One Kammer date is 1888 . E R 2 according to my information was
raised in the year 1890. So was the helmet reissued from another unit ?
Eisenbahn Regt 1 was raised in the year 1875
