Any ideea on this item? Seller said it's either a pickelhaube front visor or a schield for parade uniform.
Thank you in advance.

Hello, I'm from Holland and thought this soldier in the middle with the helmet was Dutch, but he could also be Romanian, judging the helmet. What do you think? And what could the setting be? I think these are German Grenzschutz.

Difficult to say, unfortunately the photo is not very clear, but form what I can see his greatcoat looks more Romanian than Dutch, the Dutch one had a more thick and rounded collar. The helmet plate also looks Romanian because is more egg shape, not oval as the Dutch one. The rifle seems to be an ZB.24 rifle (and bayonet), in WW2 the Dutch were equipped the Mannlicher Geweer M.95 http://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steyr-Mannlicher_M1895 which looks totally different (external magazine).

Now I have a question for you: is this a Dutch WW1 Marechaussee NCO?

I think we can be sure it's a Romanian soldier, thanks for the help!

Your portrait could be a Wachtmeester (Sergeant) of the Marechaussee. But it looks like he's wearing a green/grey uniform and has 19 on his cap referring to the 19th Infantry Regiment. So I think a regular infantry sergeant.

I asked the army museum. The person on the foto is a Wachtmeester (sergeant) of the Korps Politietroepen (police troop corps) which were added to the 19th Infantry Regiment. They wore a fourragère on a fieldgrey uniform. Photo is probably taken somewhere from 1919-1925. The Korps Politietroepen was created in 1919.
