    Default Prussian M95 enlisted pattern J.R. 137 / I.B.R.J.R.60 or 66

    Hello,

    Here's a nice Prussian M95 enlisted pattern helmet I just picked up. It's a small size 54, 1915 dated, with the round version maker mark of Alexander Dahl of Barmen.

    I supplied the national kokarde, otherwise it came with the chinstrap and Prussian kokarde. (Kokardes look shiny because of the flash used. Another overcast day w/more rain...)

    The helmet has already been placed on an adjustable head form to get it back into proper shape.

    I'm very happy with the dual "J.R. 137" and "I B R J R 60" (or is it "66"?) markings. (First Battalion Reserve Jaeger Regiment 60 or 66)

    Best Regards,

    Alan

    Yes you do, they are wonderful to look at and handle and since getting my 2 I have no further interest in steel helmets it seems!

    Oh no...then I'm going to have to stay way!!! Got to fill the remaining holes in my helmet collection first. Only 4 or 5 to go so hopefully not too long of a wait...

    Thanks Phil, Michael, and Glenn, I appreciate it!

    Yes, these pickelhaubes are addictive!

    The more I look at the markings since posting this last night, I am now fairly convinced that it is a "60" instead of "66". If you look at the lower right corner of the last digit, it is squared off, as compared to the first digit of "6" where the ink stamped 6 is more rounded on the lower right corner of the number. Seeing those small differences fairly well convinces me it is "60" for the number part of the marking.

    Chip M. saw the helmet posted last evening on another forum and shared this information about the units: "The regimental staff and the I & III battalions of Res.Inf.Rgt.Nr.60 were formed by I.R.Nr.137 on August 2, 1914."

    Best Regards,

    Alan
