I have a Pickelhaube that I have had for 50 years or so. The chin strap broke many years back and I believe I have the metal parts but have to locate them. I am posting some photos I have of the helmet and I have several questions regarding it and its condition.
What might this helmet be worth in its present condition?
What can you tell me about the helmet / markings / year?
What you consider the helmets condition to be?
Would applying restoration parts (i.e. chinstrap) increase its value any?
Where might ORIGINAL replacement parts be found?
There is a marking inside, visible in some of the photos but its hard for me to make out clearly. It appears to be a stamping but I can only make out the word "Greenbach" and some smaller wording below it. Any help with identifying this would be appreciated as well.
Thank you all in advance for your help, information and comments.
