Searching some dealers in search of a nice pickelhaube to add to my collection I met some helmets with only one rosette( hope I got the right name )
Are there any helmets that are with one rosette or it is because one is missing ?

Thanks

The link below should offer you..."an answer to all questions on Pickelhauben". Take your time; sit back and visit this magnificent source. Enjoy Tony's work.

Kokarde (German) or cocade is the name.

Hi, Thank you all for your help.
I saw this helmet " Prussian man. Foot type. Regt. 1880 " but it seems that it has only one Kokarde to the right of the helmet which it seems that is PreuBen because it is Black outside and white, but the left side there is no Kokarde. Is this correct. Thanks
