    Original Pickelhaube mod. 1915?

    Hi,

    I'ld like read your opinions about this pickelhaube mod.1915 that I'm thinking to buy...

    I don't read any mark or stamp, only 53 (the size) very little?

    Which is your opinions about leather, metal component, kokard and chin strap?

    Thank you very much in advanced

    Cockades looked touched up cant tell if real or fake. Chinstrap looks to have been sand papered possibly . Helmet looks real enough with a very small rear peak? Rob

      Looks like an authentic helmet, and I think the cockades may be of the period also.
      Not so certain about the chinstrap; those I have seen that survived 100 + years often seem to have faded leather & be somewhat fragile. Of course, few of these have the original chinstrap & those that do command a premium.
      The wappen looks to have been in place for a long time.
      A good example, original chinstrap or not, IMHO.

        Thank you very much, but I have the last question: I read that the metal parts were obtained with a chemical process. In this case, however, looking at the scratches on the tip and also the eagle, it would seem that they have been painted in feldgrau or grau. It's normal?
        Thanks

          Filed grey paint is common, there where some chemically darkened, but this is not one of them.

          You have a very good honest helmet.
