Default M95 Prussian F.A.R. 63 Kugelhelm

For your review please. Because of the vent less rear spine it may be considered an earlier model? Not sure. The kokarden have no doubt been repainted, and the inside hole has been shaved on each to fit tighter against the shell. They may even be reproductions. IMO, the chinstrap is a laughable reproduction. The leather looks odd, is poorly cut, and the stitching is not what you see on an original. The verdigris on the brass adjustment buckles looks the same as another reproduction chinstrap I recently posted. Not a spot of it built up around the leather. Most likely anti-freeze as Ken B. mentioned on the other one. The rest of the helmet looks fine. What say you? Thanks again for your time and comments/opinions provided.

Chuck
