    Sorry if you feel offended here, that was the last thing on earth I intended to do... It's just that sometimes those covers are not displayed because someone doesn't want to cover a complete helmet.
    Again, I wasn't saying there is something wrong with your helmet or anything else. If you feel it that way, I appologize again to you... Maybe my English isn't good enough to express what I exactly meant..

    No offence taken Adler, It is not in my collecting interests. My wife inhereted it and it just sits in a cupboard, not really loved, that is the helmet not my wife.John.

    Blackpowder44, unloved !!...its a beauty !!...Guard Artillery Officers Kugelhelm, that Officers wappen (front badge) is woth a fortune alone, the interior is a shame, but in my mind would'nt harm its appeal. Get it on display !!!....as to covering it up, NO. Stuka f made a good point, if you have a pickelhaube cover, the best way to display is to use one of the 'tacky' plastic/resin helms available on the net for fancy dress, cheap at around 10 or less, and you dont have to hide any of your pickelhaubes from view. Just add a couple of cockades a chinstrap and display ! heres how it looks on my 'tacky' helm.
