    Hello

    I have never seen one of this type before. Have a bad feeling, that is made from 2 different helmets...because the patina of the coat of arms is a litle diferent of the patina on the helmet,even if the austrohungarian eagle is gold-plated. Wait for the experts opinion.

    I can't find anything close to this ever worn by the Austrians-

    It looks to me like one of those fancy French fireman's helmet with the original badge removed and another added. Some of the older firemen's helmets did look similar to dragoon helmets prior to the Adrian-type which was adopted later on.

    Most definitely NOT an Austrian dragoon helmet. The plate does not belong on the helmet, and is poorly attached.

    I see that this helmet is now being offered on eBay as an Austrian Dragoon helmet. Maybe CAMRY didn't take on board the comments about it!

    I have just added to the description that this is not an Austrian dragoon helmet. I was going to revise the listing, but there were already bids on, it so I could not change it. It is never intent to mis-describe an item, but by the time I found what this helmet was, I could not change the listing.
    Thanks again for all of the help and comments
