UNR1917, December 15, 2018 in Germany: Imperial Uniforms, Headwear, Insignia & Personal Equipment
Hello UNR , Police ? Its a Kurassier type Helmet . Please where you find it ?
My grandfather was in the war. He probably came from Germany, I do not know exactly! He died, no more to ask! I could give him a good hand!
That´s strange. Cuirassiers had a line-eagle. This is a dragoon-eagle. Jäger zu Pferde (mounted Jäger) has this eagle. But Jäger z.Pf. 1-7 had white eagles. Jäger z.Pf. 8-13 had yellow eagles, but enlisted men had a black leather-helmet and officers a black helmet.. No tombak helmets! The cloverleave cocades were worn by Jg.z.Pf 1-7. It looks like a mix between regiments 1-7 and 8-13...
Maybe there was a war-time pattern with that symbols and made from tombak...
You see a really specialist on this topic! I can not say anything!
Sorry to say but this helmet is not older then 10 to 15 years.
Totally faked, nothing original to this helmet.
