Title: 1872 Cavalry Dress Helmet
Post by: Top Kick Ken on September 17, 2007, 02:35:46 am
Anyone have ideas where I can find a reproduction of one of these helmets?

I've found originals and some replicas over the years through private party, but never through a company or firm.

Any ideas for where I can find one of these.

Thanks in advance

Try Coon Creek.  They had some on display at the SASS Convention last year, and I recently saw someone wearing one of their helmets.

I am obliged and honored by your prompt reply, as always.

I am concentrating on getting my dress uniform to an appropriate standard, this one item has proven to be the most difficult to find.  I have, in the past found originals (Usually far too expensive) or reproductions (that lack the needed authenticity) or combinations of the two that were to varying degrees, unacceptable in obvious ways.
