Erich,
Welcome to the forum. You have a real fantastic looking M15. Are there any unit markings inside the helmet or rear visor? Could you post a close up of the makers stamp that we see inside near the spike base support plate? Thanks, and again, welcome aboard.
Best regards
John

No unit. Wanted a Baden specifically due to me being stationed at the 110th barracks.

Beautiful condition helmet, congratulations.

I truly hope you got a big discount on what the seller was asking for it.

And you know that this enlisted helmet such as this one of yours would not have come with an officer's storage/carry case, correct? The seller didn't know that the case doesn't go with the helmet. He was simply selling items for an estate he is dispersing for someone, and he doesn't know military items.

The seller was banned from the forum here earlier this fall, after he unfortunately spouted off and insulted several members here that were trying to point out the fake WW1 German aviation badges he was trying to sell for the estate he is handling. That's not your problem, of course. And I congratulate you again on a very fine looking Baden M15 helmet!

Best Wishes,

Alan

I can't recall ever seeing an M15 in such wonderful condition - a textbook example. Nice to know someone here benefited from that debacle earlier in the year. Well done.

He is a very hard to work with gent and currently has a fake iron cross on eBay for 499 right now. I paid much much less than that price lol. When I first told him my offer he told me he was insulted lol. I hope I didn’t get shafted but I barely paid 4 figures for helm and case.

Nice M15 in pristine condition, 911 has shown you the correct kokarde. Welcome to the forum. This is a government issued helmet so as has been stated, the carrying case belongs to a private purchase helmet most of which belong to officers.
