For reference purposes I am adding my Kurrasier Regt Konigin (Pommersches) Nr. 2 NCO Private Purchase wappen which is of officer quality. Notice the silver solder on the posts. Also note the horizontal scoring on the bandeau letters. I assume this was so the paint adhered better to the wappen.
Uber rare wappen! Thank you very much John, for removing this and posting such great photos. The wappen on these unique regimental helmets makes up a great deal of their value and the detail is amazing!
Very nice indeed. You can see where his other Wappen can have Bandeau added easily and soldered on, however, the Wappen for this Regiment is always a one piece stamping because it more or less is the entire bottom half.
