What kind of helmet could that be?

Hello, everyone,

i found this beautiful helmet and I need your help. It looks like a "Kürassiere" or a "Jäger zu Pferde" helmet and the way the leather is worn out, it is correspondingly old. But the spike base is strange. I've never seen one like this anywhere. Do you have any idea what kind of helmet this is and from what time?

Thanks Sven

I am sorry to say this, but to me this is a copy, and a very bad one too. I see nothing correct on this example..

Yes unfortunately, a bad copy, made in India and chemically aged. Available on EBay even as I write this. Hopefully, you have not spent a lot of money on this or even better, have not bought it.

Everything ok. The stupid thing is that I have to keep looking to find a nice original helmet (without ebay). Thank you very much for your help!

Tony: have you already tried the Indian urine yourself? :unsure:😂

Thank you for that, I appreciate that.

5 years ago a wind turbine was built in a field in our city and a prison camp from the war was found. I removed the rust from one of the Wehrmacht helmets as much as possible and put it on the shelf. As with candy, now I want more helmets. 🙂

I'm starting slowly, but looking at ebay is disastrous. There are only helmets from India or China. At the beginning, helmets that are not so beautiful would do for me, the main thing is that they are original. For 20 years I have owned a very very interesting internet domain that I would also trade or sell to buy helmets. The domain name, however, only via private conversation.

Thanks for your support!!

Sorry for my little school and google English 😊

Wilkommen Sven.

Ich bin Kanadier aber Deutschland ist eines meiner Lieblingsländer! Ich habe allerdings etwas deutsche DNA, meine Frau auch. Wir sind diesen Dezember in Deutschland auf den Weihnachtsmärkten, Rüdesheim, Düsseldorf, Braunschweig, Leipzig, Dresden, Nurnberg, Heidelberg und Frankfurt. Ja, Kanadier lieben es, lange Strecken zu fahren!

Düsseldorf ... that's where I grew up and Gütersloh ... the city in which I work for a very large company.

I think international forums are just super interesting. You get to know a lot of people from many countries and contact persons in your own country with whom you can possibly exchange ideas personally.

Thanks for the super friendly welcome here in this forum, I'll keep looking and then I'll show you my helmets, which I hope I will find.

Sven. Your very large company, Mielle? If you have a chance, go to the Gütersloh Brauhaus and try a Fuhrmanns Dunkel! Darn it! Now I'm thinking of all of my favorites around there. Potts Landbier, Fuhrmanns Dunkel....
