Unless dirt cheap - not that much to like here. Condition is just bad/unattractive. Plate and rest of helmet do not match.

yes, I did notice that the spike is brass and the front plate is a white metal, both have been well polished over the years and i wasn't sure whether they had to match or not, thank you KW

Its not too bad put a brass plate on, a brass chinstrap some aged cockades and it will look fine . looks like some nice markings on the rear peak . Interestingly the helmet plate has the correct fittings for the holes . Rob
