Default M95 Prussian EM Pickelhauben

Time for a U.S attic find. This one is huge, maybe a size 60? All parts are original to this helmet, with excellent overall patina. The ghosting behind the wappen, and other parts is untouched. I have one request, and one question please.

1. My request would be your help in deciphering the markings stamped in the rear neck guard/visor.

2. My question has to do with the missing orb. There's no question it was removed long ago judging by the patina and lack of ghosting. Although rarely, I have encountered this before, as well as the head of the eagle being removed. What is the significance (if any) of this?

Thank you,

Chuck
