    Default Pickelhaube with fabric chinstrap

    Hi all,
    As you can see I am trying to get a bit of an imperial German collection together (I also have a few bayonets but they will not fit in the cabinet), the centre piece of which is this newly aquired Prussian ersatz felt Pickelhaube. I am by no means an expert on these items but I have not seen another one with a fabric chinstrap such as this, any ideas?

    P.S. I know the Princess Mary tin is a little out of place but its the only place I can display it at the moment! Also, apologies for the ugly de- humidifier in the background.

    Hi Oradour
    I am away from my camera at the moment but as soon as I have it again I will post a pic of the chinstrap in more detail. Thanks for showing interest.

    As you said in your post 'ersatz' I have one on my felt which has the silver plated fixtures. Are those steel chin strap buckles? all the other fixtures appear to be brass.
