    Georg, I have placed your photo here, my Cuirassier Helmet is from the same year and maker as your helmet ! What "27" is for I have no idea...unless the helmets were marked individually at the clothing stores, and then issued to a particular soldier and ticked off upon its eventual return. There were 13 J-z-P Regiments.
    Prost ! Steve.

    Well, this is going to be an ongoing project, I will leave the repro. Parts on it as I keep looking for original parts. I know that I could have done a better job with the bluing, but I didn’t want to make it look new and this way it appear to have some age to it.

    I still can’t post photos (the Technical/Design - Questions, How-to, & Advice posting was of no help). Would I be breaking some type rule if I just start a new account?

    Georg, a great job ! well done...I agree that you should try to find a pair of original cockades, the chinstrap can be sourced, but will be expensive !....why not age the one you have for the time being ? it will look a lot better, the cockades could also be aged/toned down, using a little yellowed clear varnish . I have posted your photographs...it is a great looking helmet for sure !
    Prost ! Steve.
