    Default Model 1905 Jäger zu Pferde Metalhelme

    Good Morning Folks!

    I'm being offered the Prussian M1905. All appears to be legit based on photos of authentic pieces I've reviewed, however being a novice to this particular model of Prussian headgear, I thought it best to run it by the forum.

    Any input, good or bad, would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

    Eric...a very nice and IMO original M1905 Jager zu Pferde (mounted light infantry/rifles) metalhelm.....dated 1913 to Jäger-zu-Pferd-Regt. Nr.7 garrisoned at Trier and part of IX Armee Korps, this helmet is marked to the 4th Squadron of that Regiment. It is a great helmet that may prove to settle a long running difference of opinion...some references give the 7th Regiment as wearing a blackened steel helmet (as this is) with silver fittings and tomback (Brass) chinscales..while others state all tomback fittings, this helmet displays silver fittings with tomback chinscales, it must prove a point to many scholars of Imperial mounted head dress, a great find......a rare helmet.
    The Jäger-zu-Pferd were originally raised from "Meldareiter" mounted dispatch riders in the late 1890's.
    Prost ! Steve.

    I agree with Steve-it looks dead-on original and is an Excellent lobster tail! A Rare animal, for sure!
