    Whitehunter.....hurry, as prices are rising, fast !...it does rather depend on condition, State and rank, try to obtain one in the best condition your budget can stretch to...for example, a Model 1915 Prussian Infantry version is probably the best to start with, at around 300 for a complete example (chinstrap,cockades,interior), followed by an Model 1895 example at around 350-400, Prussian Officers start at around 550-600+. Beware, plenty of fakes/reproductions around, post if you find one. Other States, i.e. Bavarian,Baden, Wurttemburg atract a premium on top the stated prices at around 50-100 more, however, it is possible to source either models for say between 160-220, thes will be sound but may be missing parts, front badges, cockades,chinstrap etc, these can be sourced separatly. Always purchase one with an interior, and remember dealers prices will be higher than private sales. Hope that helps, it is rather a complicated subject !...check out this site for the style and variety of Pickelhaubes that exist, the more exotic, the dearer the helmet ! Kaiser's Bunker
    Prost ! Steve.
