Default Goodie or a baddie Pickelhaube

What are your thoughts on this particular example of Pickelhaube. In particular the liner. All the other examples I see have 9 leather tabs. This one only has 8. Is that of concern? Please share your opinions as I am first in line to buy it for 450€

Based on these pictures, it appears to be an excellent original example. It's complete, all components appear to be original, and it's Unit marked in the rear visor. I don't see a problem with the liner. I have a M15 Saxon Pickelhaube with leather liner that has 10 rounded tongues (leather tabs).

Looks okay. Prussian cockade has been touched up. Reichs cockade seem a bit minty for the rest of the helmet but can not see it clearly enough due to pic.

Yes anywhere from 400-500 is a fair price.
