Every time I mess with the woodwork all I find is dust and dead spiders.
great find,see if you can trace him.
Every woodwork purchase I make is usually done at the local DIY store. But a lovely helmet. Good luck in tracing him.

Nice M1895. I love the wappen for Saxony. It is fantastic that it has the named label on it.
WoW that is a lot of RICHTER's on that list. I wonder since they all were from Saxony if they were related or just a common sir name like mentioned
Nice M95 indeed, but did you know that this is a rare one? It's made of laquered felt and made in one piece. The stitching you see is to attach the liner...
It's a fabulous find! Congratulations!
Very nice helmet.
Great lid! Love the name tag!
Heres some information on the unit.........Kgl. Sächs. 12. Infanterie-Regt. Nr.177, garrisoned in
Dresden, part of XII Armee Korps.
Prost ! Steve.
"The German Army is the perfectly adapted, perfectly running Machine. The difference is that the Germans are organised with a view to War...with the cold, hard, practical and business-like purpose of winning victories."
