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

Hello.  Based on the photo, would you by chance know anything about the helmet - officer/NCO? - regiment? - make?  etc?

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

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
