This was the first Prussian Kurassier Officer helmet, Model 1809. This helmet was modified several times over the years and went out of service in 1842 as the Model 1833. It was replaced in 1842-1843 by the metal Kurassierhelm and the Pickelhaube:

This is an extremely rare version of the original 1813 Landwehr Tschako. This would have been used in the War of the Sixth Coalition or the “Befreiungskriege”, the Wars of Liberation:

This is an original officers Tschako from the Mansfelder Pioneer Battalion. This battalion was always identified by the glistening silver oval with crossed hammers appearing on their Tschakos. This would have been used in the Wars of Liberation from 1813 to 1816:

Here is a Model 1860 Bremen Infantry helmet. This helmet is stamped with the Kammer Mark IR75 and is dated 1866. This model was used by the Bremen Infantry in both the Austro-Prussian War (1866) and the Franco-Prussian War (1870-1871):

Image

This is a Model 1868 Bavarian Infantry Raupenhelm. This was used in the Franco-Prussian War:

Image

And finally a Model 1867. This helmet has been converted to Landes Gendarmerie or Feld Gendarmerie with the addition of a 1871 Wappen:

Image

Most of these helmets have additional posts in this forum; however, all of the photos are missing or otherwise held for ransom.

Let's see your oldies but goodies!

Hey John,

not sure what exactly happened to him.
Got it from a house clearing where it was found in a attic.
Never touched it since I got it, exept for the liner wich I removed (and kept of course!).

Great helmets! Tony I did not know you owned so many of these early models. Impressive.
By the way there is currently an exhibition on the franco-prussian 1870-71 war at the Musee de l'Armee in Paris.
Unfortunately it will close on July 30st and I will miss it:
