It does appear that the front visor has been replaced, the wappen also is a replacement (extra holes), but is an original plate. Spike color does not match the base's color, so it may have been added to the helmet (both are original just not to each other). I believe the chin strap (at least the leather) is a replacement, there should be two lines pressed into the leather a little in from the edges. Cockades look good. This all said, I don't think it a bad buy.
