Hello.  I have an opportunity to purchase a helmet which appears to be of Czarist Russia.  Can you please take a look at the photos and tell me if you think it is an original period item?  Also, any information would be helpful.

Sorry, only have these three photos.

Thanks.  Linas

Linasl . Some of the details of the Helmet puzzled me. One the round base for the spike. usually it was cruciform . Two the two buttons and a segment of chain over the front peak . Its incongruent . Three , the ornated reinforcment at the back is rare too. Four ,the absence of the cartouche or amazon shield below de eagle is also rare. Perhaps it is a Civil Servant helmet ,high rank

    • I like my tea strong enough for my spoon to stand up in. My father got me into it. When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did. So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian  
    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain. Now days I can’t stand sweet iced tea but it’s still the most common drink in the south, but, you can get unsweetened ice tea in the south. Im familiar with ho
