Shown is an officers helmet, basic pattern for Grenadier Regiments 1-12, except for G.R. 1,4,7 and 9, which wore helmets with the Grenadier eagle, old or new pattern and with battle honours etc. The old pattern eagle shown is pre 1913. The new pattern eagle was introduced gradually for all regiments between 1897 and 1913. Shown is the old pattern heraldic eagle with an oval FWR shield on the breast. The helmet is presumably from Grenadier-Regiment König Friedrich I. (4. Ostpreussisches) No.5, based in Danzig, as it came complete with cloth cover and red regimental number. The eagle displays a very fine quality fire-gilding. Inside is the normal officers type lining in leather and ribbed silk, the front peak is lined in green leather, the rear peak in red leather, which was standard for officer helmets. This example could be dated as around 1897-1910, probably the latter, as the spike is relatively tall. Correction: Title of Regiment should read: Grenadier-Regt. König Friedrich I. (4.Ostpreussisches) No.5 - based in Danzig. Friedrich I was the first King of Prussia since it's establishment in 1701.
Hello everyone. I am from Russia and I am new in this forum. I am looking to buy a German Wehrmacht helmet but i don’t have a much of a knowledge.. well I don’t have at all honestly. so I have some questions first Does M40 helmets cost more or more precious than M35 Helmets or there is no difference? what do you think about re-painted helmets? Personally I have a mixed feelings about them. Looks good but it’s spoils the originality in same time. My last question is; what is the average prices for a m40 or M35 helmets with some rust, without sweetband but all in one peace? I’m finding too many helmets with similar conditions but in very different prices. There must be fake ones also of course. I’m going to upload some helmets of sellers from Russia. Could you advise me about their originality and prices? ( I can add more photos of specific ones) first black one cost 137$ second green one costs 64.5 $ 3th one is 114 $ There is more that costs 25-30$ (They are rusty or there is some big holes ) and repainted ones . I didn't add them because otherwise post will be too long . thank you for the help .
Hi. I purchased a few helmets as a lot and knew they looked a wee bit fiddled with, also the fact the stories the guy spun kept changing as the deal progressed, but still the helmets themselves are a great example of times and shapes. I have a duel question for each. What are they and do the insignia match? Or is it another example similar to the German Fireman helmet with the English Hampshire Fire Services sticker on it. Also, here is my collection. You may interested in the ww1 German sentry plate and helmet. ww1 RN Pith Helmet with original tin and medals. 1930's inter war RAAF or RAF pith helmet aluminium liner, ww2 Australian officer cap, and hidden is a Swiss army ski cap from the 20's.

Trenchfoot posted a topic in Helmets and HeadgearHello! I Purchased this helmet 3 days ago under the idea that it was British. It turned out to be Canadian and the shell dated 1942. However, the liner was dated 1954. Was it possibly used after ww2 as a post war helmet, having the liner replaced? Also, I am skeptical of the camo netting. It hangs over the users face when you wear it, and looks to be ether fake, or field made. Can you guys help me out?
