    Would like to see some better pictures of the outside paint and rivets. Is the helmet brim magnetic?

    Bonjour Pierre,

    I am really not to sure about the badge, i thought it was colonial ?, maybe north africa ??, thats what i was imformed ,i will do some research i think, but the condition is all the better for a bit of my TLC, the leather was not so good ( dried out)

    A bientot

    Hi Mate,

    I have posted these pictures to hopefully show you the rivets, I have scraped a bit of paint off to see whats below, the rivets holding on the "plume" are aluminium, the ones on the helmet are brass., i don't think the rim is magnetic.
    Hope this helps!
    Cheers
