  1. Seems like the top of the spike didn't grow old with the other parts of the helmet... But a nice helmet never the less. Got my self one like that too, in lesser condition, hope to get it next week.

    Ships , anyone?

    The wheel is new to the collection;
  6. Very nice and informative.
  7. so glad I could lay hands on one! It was high on my list, of the "items I would very much like to have, but it will probably never happen!".
  8. Hello, I can live with the damage! Lesson learned.... I am a restorer by profession and hardly(in fact never) touch the militaria I collect. But let me warn you about the polystyrene heads, like the one you are showing your helmet on. They decompose by time and can leave your liner with serious damage. That doesn't happen over night, however. It takes time, but never the less better safe then sorry .

    Ships , anyone?

    The Mercator finally home. (the port of attach for that ship is in fact Antwerp, but it can be seen and visited in Ostend, for many years, and a (heavy)discussion between the two towns started since...) This one is 75 by 120 cm.

    marking on French belt plate...

    It could be indeed! Didn't even think of it! Guy, would be the right man to ask.
  11. looks like pewter but weights like bronze, no marking. It is 22.5 by 11 cm and weights nearly 1 kg!
  12. Ok, thanks for your input! And what is it made for? Letter clip...?

    marking on French belt plate...

    Don't know what the "3" and the "A" could stand for, but as it is a "genie" buckle, the "G" seems logical...

    French WW1 Pilot Badge for review

    First answers are positive. It is a nice WWI pilot brevet, but dating it is quiet difficult; it could be post war, up to 1920.

    Spanish sword dated 1854

    forgot to show you this one. Can't tell you much about it, except that it is marked Toledo and 1854. 97 cm long.
  17. l am quiet confident in it being genuine. It reveals a dove tail construction, like one would expect on originals. Also have a few of them to compare it to.
  18. hello, could some one en-light me on what the badge under the regimental badge could mean.
  19. Thank you! I did try to google it, but it didn't give anything over here... I did manage to find the regiment with google.

    Spanish sword dated 1854

    Interesting site. Thanks for pointing it out. Amazing number of different swords they have had. I had no idea. Wish there was a list like that about Belgian blades. Any way, here it is;
