All,

The other day I posted a JzP Officer's helmet on the recent finds section of this site. A while ago I also purchased an M1905 enlisted version made by Gerbruder Israel in 1916. I got the helmet at an amazing price from a seller in the US. The chin scales were purchased from Weitz and the kokardes recently from a seller in New York.

Some repair has been made to the liner which was torn or worn through. I have spent some time removing some rust and oiling the shell to stabilise it. The Wappen was tarnished a dull yellow to the point that it looked like a standard gold / brass version, cleaning has shown otherwise.

Hope you like.

Steve

Very nice Steve....I wonder if this helme was one of the 12,000 helmets that made up that NYC Victory Pyramid?
