Can anyone help with these markings? On a Bavarian Pickelhaube.
Thanks Brian. James wasn't sure about the 00 either. So is this a Saxon Regiment in your opinion? Any chance it could be Bavarian? Maybe Tony might have a better idea? It is on a "Bavarian" helmet I just bought and is en route to me. James thinks maybe the wappen was changed from Saxon to Bavarian. I won't know if there are extra holes until I receive it.Third Battalion, 10th Kompanie , 134 Regiment. Never seen 00 before, no idea.
Yes, it should be Saxon regiment 134. In this case, 00 should stand for 1900. This is how they indicated the year of attribution: last two digits (this was specific to Saxon markings).
I would go with the rounded ones if I were you. Serrated ones were used on the M15, but rounded ones are more the usual Saxon style. I have both an M95 and a M15 Saxon, both have the rounded kokarden.And yet another question. What would be the correct Sachsen kokarden for this helmet? I see there are two types, the rounded ones and the ones with the serrated edges. Would I be looking for rounded ones for both sides (Imperial and Saxon)? Or do they mix and match?
That’s great James. Hopefully it will arrive next week. Coming from Saskatoon Saskatchewan. The second I get it I will measure and let you know.Peter- just went through parts box and I have a Saxon wappen that could work, depends on width between holes...
let me know when you get the helmet and measure!
