Hi all
Not strictly eBay but this item has come up at a local auction house advertised as "Imperial German One Year Volunteers Pickelhaube of Field Artillery Regiment von Scharnhorst (1. Hanoversches) Nr10" and appearing to be Hanoverian has got me interested.
Artillery Helmet
Taking into account that the trichter looks bad, does anyone have any thoughts and can anyone help with the markings and if the OYV was actually in this regiment?
I've tried to add a couple of pics below in case people cant get into the site.
Many thanks
Jeremy

Not too sure how good the trichter is, but can you please remind me what the F signifies?
Also is there a way of confirming if Ihssen was ever a OYV in either regiment?
Cheers all

Hi, thanks for all the info - invaluable as ever.
Does anyone know how I could confirm that the label for OYV Ihssen is legit? Was there an Ihssen in the 1st battery of either regiment?
