it is still a great one to look at
with or without its silver wash
what i do wonder is in what way was the silver wash applied on the parts and how commes it now lets go
is it becose of the lots of cleaning or of its enviorment that these helmets were in over the past100 years
sommethings to think about :thumb up:

I guess the stuff never sticked well right from the start !!! I saw other Garde Dragoner Nr 2 Offz helmets with the same problem !
"Cleaning" will have done the rest !!!
grrrrrrrr...

Years ago before Jan Kube put everything
in his auctions , he sold me some nice helmets direct .
One was a 2 Garde Dragoon officer .
He bought it from a family member so he
was able to supply me with the name of the officer
who owned and wore the helmet .
It has a lot of the silver wash on the front plate .
Never cleaned as it was in the family until
Kube bought it . When I learn to post photos
on the site , I will send out some photos of it .
