Gents, picked this up, quite cheaply, but needs some TLC, last owner had polished it up, thus it has lost its 'ghosting' around the wappen, it is rather a rare helmet, being faintly marked on the rear visor '6.Th.I.R.95' which is "6. Thüringisches Infanterie-Regt. Nr.95 (Gotha, II BN Hildburghausen, III Bn Coburg) XI Armee Korps. The Saxe-Coburg-Gotha cockade is a at the very least a re-paint, but they can be sourced, the Wappen/front plate is the rare 'Fuerst' plate, (only has 2 brass grommeted holes on front, no extra holes!) this plate is damaged (missing a leg and tailfeathers) and missing the central 'State' wappen. I intend over time to return to its former glory, hopefully ! I include some photographs, you can just make out the markings. It has its interior, however at some stage it has had its 'fingers' neatly cut back to form an officers type sweatband, why, we shall never know, perhaps to emulate an officers for comfort, perhaps it had the removable officers type skull cap liner retrofitted by its owner, who knows, still an interesting and rare marked helm.
