    Default Lack of research and I screwed up on a pointy Helmet

    Well I have had this green felt Pointy helmet for sometime and started to "restore" it as I was getting more of them.

    It had no chinstrap or cockades and the brim brass was missing, however it had "round things" mounted that hold a chinstrap on...well after looking at many on the internet, I thought those "round things" were put there by the last owner....so I bought repro chinstrap holders ( for now, until I can get some good originals)...and this morning I found that the original "round things" were probably original to this spikey thing..so money and time waisted..not to mention I feel a bit foolish, however I have never claimed to know much about these...just took my fancy for awhile.

    "Smack" on your hand. Bad boy, ruin antiques like that
    Collect ROA, Cossack, Schuma and other WW2 Volunteer militaria.
