    Got it in the mail today. Any additional thoughts now that I have some closer photos of the cockades and chinstrap? The national cockade appears to be pretty old and faded. Should I be put off at all that the chinstrap has brass fittings? I know the dealer is a reputable one, but I was hoping for an extra set of eyes and opinions just to be safe. Its advertised as all original. Do the chinstrap and cockades look right?

    A stunning M1915 Pickelhaube ! in remarkable condition for its age, IMO all 100% original ! Love it ! I would not be worried by the colour of the chinstrap fittings !....as usual very small size at fifty two and a half ! "R.J.R.23 II.B" marking for 2nd Battalion, Reserve Infantry Regiment 23........Reserve Regiment of "Infanterie-Regt. von Winterfeldt (2.Ober-schlesisches) Nr.23, garrisoned at Neisse, part of VI 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."
    G.W. Steevens - The Daily Mail (1897)

    I did some research on that regiment in the History of the 251 Divisions. It saw quite a bit of hell. I wondered if this might have gone unused because of its condition, but there is a nice sweat ring in the top that indicates at least some good use.
