    Description

    Model 1872 Cavalry Dress Helmet. Partially restored. The rear bill of this helmet has the distinctive "lobster tail" shape of those manufactured by Bent & Bush of Boston. There is no sweat band, and the cord is worn and frayed. The regimental insignia is missing, but the crossed-sabers side buttons are intact. There are obvious repairs to rear and side. The helmet is otherwise complete.
    From the Glenwood Swanson Collection.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
