  1. Hi The officer helmets do not wear two identical Kokarden The officer helmets do have stars insteed of nuts and screws at the base of the spike The rosette, fixing the chinscale are for officer. It should be steel screws and nuts. For me, this helmet is mixing pieces which should not be mixed. And no explanation to be found with any war stories. Furthermore, I do not see a Dragoon helmet, which has square leather visor. All in all, if you happy with your helmet, everything goes well.
  2. Hi Chinscales are OFF type. I can't say more about the helmet.
  3. Hi For me, the Kokarden (officer type,) and the chinscales should not be mounted on this helmet. The KB picture shows a genuine OR's M67. Yours is quite different.
  4. Hi Are you sure that 2 officer "Kokarden" are the best regulation for this helmet????

The chin strap is a plastic one But what about the cap badge? It looks silver plate and burnished It is attached by two horizontal lugs/loops of white metal Would you tell me if it is a good genuine cap or...a wrong one ? Thank you in advance, Eric
