    Default In Need Of Help: Jager Zu Pferd Helm

    Hello, I am new to this site and have some questions about my what I believe to be my Model 1915 PreuBen jager zu Pferde Metalhelme. It is in pretty good condition I think but it is missing some parts. Mainly the crest on the front of the helm along with the chin strap. I have found some sites that sell reproduction crest but they are as i say "in the bright" meaning they are not the dulled grey oxidized fittings. If there is a place to get orginal fittings that are correct for this helm I would love to refit it with orginal fittings. But if not no worries! Also, this helm is a bit peculiar to me because in all but two pictures I have seen of this specific helm (same regiments and the like) the cockades are Red with a thin White ring on the right hand side as you are wearing it and Black with a thin White ring on the left as you are wearing it. But my helm is the reverse the red cockade is on the left as you are wearing it and the black is on the right. Is this special or just a mix up? I am affraid to try and correct it and move them and risk breaking them or something along those lines. I can post pictures if it can help. I am looking for any information and help that can be provided.
    Many Thanks!

    Some of the parts that appear to be missing are the spike and wappen (helmet plate). The Wappen is the Dragoon eagle and the spike although it likes close to the same as that on an infantry helmet there is a difference.

    What is all that 'gunge' in the first picture? is it a glass/resin repair? That's what it looks like under magnification!
