    Please see colonel J's pickelhaubes, there Colonel J's - Articles -scroll helmets

    Joe Robinson wrote there:
    "On the eighth of December 1915 the Prussian War Minister authorized the use of an experimental helmet for use with some troops earmarked for Serbia.ii Instead of having an eagle for Prussia as a helmet Wappen these helmets had a metal number shield in its place. The shields are known as scrolls. Thus was born the legend and confusion of the scroll helmets."

    Nevertheless please see too: Colonel J's - Articles - Pickelhaube Fakes and Doctor Jobs (at the end of site)

    With best wishes

    In memory of my father who was in K-Einsatz, combat engagement, with the RAD in the Alps in 1945, of my grandfather who was with the IR 87 during campaign in France in 1940 and of my grand-uncle who served in the Gardegrenadierregiment Nr. 3 "Königin Elisabeth" and who was killed in action at Craonne, Chemin des Dames in France in 1917

    As the war progressed, Felt was used as Ersatz/replacement material in order to save on leather...

    The strap definitely looks like a repro, not sure about the insignia either

    That is the first felt Haube I have see with the scroll numbers on the front.
    Looks to be in quite good condition. Like its almost new.

    I agree - it is a reproduction. Spike and chin strap post maybe originals, but nothing else is.
