Rear visor shows crazing and liner is a bit brittle ! but was surprised to see an ink name in rear visor very hard to see with naked eye !My phone camera got readable shots ! Erdnienger is name some more writing underneath name but washed out !
BAX 1914 stamp on visor near name I believe this is Prussian Hannover depot mark? ordered Repro cockades until I can find original ones that wont break the bank .Cockades that came with helmet were repainted and are sloppy and the one was painted black as Prussian cockade but I noticed green underneath so cleaned it with mineral spirits and its green and white also repainted white ring ! not sure of state but don't believe its correct for this helmet ? chin strap seems to have original fittings but someone made it out of a strip of brown leather do not believe it to be original strap ? its old leather But I believe this helmet should have a black leather brass trimmed one ?
so thinking of ordering a repro or dying this one black and resew it better since fittings are brass ?
other wise I believe helmet to be very nice condition with original brass and eagle plus its named to me a wow !!!!
