Perhaps judging by the myriad of stampings it has been repaired for further service? Rob

Seems to be a mix and match helmet. Interior and stamps makes it an EM helmet. Wappen, spike, pearl ring and stars make it an Officer helmet. This is not a period combination. I would give this helmet a miss.

The helmet was a mere $100 "buy-it-now" on eBay recently.

I would have jumped on it and purchased it as well, simply just for the value of the officer parts on the helmet.

It never ceases to amaze me as to the number of helmets and other items that people dump on eBay each month with fire sale give away "buy-it-now" pricing.

Congratulations on a great bargain price for this "parts" helmet.

Best Regards,

Alan

I need to correct myself, for 100 usd I too would not have given it a miss.
