 Not in perfect condition but as good as I can afford for one of these rare  Hanoverian helmets. The country was eliminated in 1866. I am still doing research to determine if there should be a field badge. The  plate is made of two different materials -- brass on the outside -- silver horse. A small issue is the land underneath the horse is actually important. Once the country was annexed by Prussia you will see the horse without the land signifying a loss of the kingdom.  It has a private purchase that liner with one of the fingers missing. The front plate is held on with loops and the body seems to be made of cardboard faced with felt.

My first attempt at a medal bar.
