Hello Fellow Members,
I bought this today with a helmet, it is very clean.

DOES IT LOOK CORRECT ?
Also, do you put it on with the side openings facing towards the face or facing towards the back?

I want to thank all that help me in advanced.
JacK

Where would I post a WWI German Sword, I looked through all the categories and I see this one and one for awards, but no category for swords pre WWII.

The side opening face toward the front. They are for the chinstrap to be worn externally. Looks like a very nice find!! As for posting your sword, either of the Imperial forums should work.

Thank you,
I have had a few picklehaubes, but never a cover.
I actually did not know the openings were for the chinstrap.
Guess I was looking at it the wrong way.
Many Thanks,
JacK
