    Superb helmet ! congratulations on your find ! I must admit, I do not think, although I am selling my entire collection that I will NOT sell my M1915 Kurrassier Lobster tail, even my wife states it can go on the mantel piece in the living room !
    Prost ! Steve.

    "The German Army is the perfectly adapted, perfectly running Machine. The difference is that the Germans are organised with a view to War...with the cold, hard, practical and business-like purpose of winning victories."

    Thank you all for the kind words! I must admit I gave the helmet a treatment of Hoppe's gun oil and once over with a toothbrush to remove some surface rust and help prevent any future deterioration. It sure did wonders despite the heavier rusting on the neck guard.

    Steve, sad to hear you are selling off the collection; I imagine it's quite extensive and I'm sure contains some museum quality pieces, much like the one you've posted. If it were me, I'd keep that one as well. Good luck with the sales and thanks for sharing your example!
