That is an absolutely beautiful helmet.
What Wappen did the 1st Kurassier Regiment wear before they were awarded the "Pro Gloria Et Patria" Wappen? Was it the standard gilt eagle?
Was 1902 the first year for the "Pro Gloria Et Patria" Wappen?

Great helmet .
I like that when you remove the front plate ,
even on a metal body you still see the
outline of the Pro Gloria eagle
and you know that it is L K R 1
even when the plate is not there .
I have a reserve officer like that .
it is now in the collection of Brian Sanders .

Before the Pro Gloria eagle , it would
just a Prussian line Kurassiere eagle
just like the other non exotic regiments
