    I realize this is a soft headgear forum, but this is interesting for the fact that it demonstrates the use of an Ersatz lining on a pre-war Pickelhaube--Depaheg was most likely the maker of the liner:
    This is a classic WARTIME helmet, with a fibre body and ersatz sweatband. The entire helmet was made by Depaheg. The Bavarian plate, sans laurels around the bandeau, is the wartime version...

    Arran, I stand corrected--fiber looks like leather in the pics.

    Well, let's keep looking, because although I've never encountered an ersatz sweatband in a pre-war pickelhaube, I'm pretty sure I've seen them in pre-war visor caps!

    That's a great looking cap; good luck in your hunt. I'm hoping there will be some similiar caps at the SOS, with realistic prices ( !! ).

    Superb!

    I'm seriously considering selling all my TR items and starting over again with Imperial era instead.

    Attachment 479080Attachment 479076Attachment 479079Picked up this officer's schirmutze for the Garde du Corps, or Kurassier Regt.nr.4, at the SOS. It's shape is a bit lower than some, so I am guessing it's from 1900-1910 or so.

    A beautiful example.

    Regarding Imperial peaked caps, I believe that I can say with certainty that just about any any cap is within my 'affordability" range, save those attributed to royalty, etc. I certainly cannot say that about TR era caps, with some approaching, or exceeding $20,000.
    I enjoy the history associated with caps from both eras, but I will likely purchase, if fortunate, more Imperial headgear than that of the TR. I find the various colors of Imperial caps, especially cavalry caps, very attractive.
    Oh well, I guess the motto of the GardeKorps, "Suum Cuique", applies here as well. Thanks for your compliments.
