Thank you for all the kind words gentlemen. I had hoped you would enjoy the ensemble. It is now one of my favorites!
I have the matching KR1 cartouche but having a devil of a time finding the bandolier. Guess, I will keep up my quest.
I also like the look of the M1889. It reminds me of a Lachmann. There are no manufacturer or date stamps on the shell. The only markings I have been able to find are, LK regiment stamp under the left cockade/chinscale, a small "4E" and a "18" which I assume are squadron and a property number. The helmet has a thin brown leather lobstertail covering which I found interesting. I suspect that to protect the koller collar from this particular design. In addition this wappen seems to be a single stamped plate (however I can't be 100% sure as I cannot remove the wappen for fear of breaking the posts). The M1896 has a soldered on scroll making it a 2 piece design.
