    Alex, im afraid I agree, a "Freak Pickelhaube" indeed, actually the Eagle badge and spike assembly are genuine, albeit in bad condition (so its not all doom and gloom !), the helmet body, visors and interior, (the rest of the haube) are a badly constructed copy, looks to be a very homemade affair.
    Prost ! Steve.
    "The German Army is the perfectly adapted, perfectly running Machine. The difference is that the Germans are organised with a view to War...with the cold, hard, practical and business-like purpose of winning victories."
    G.W. Steevens - The Daily Mail (1897)

    Perhaps something thrown together for a theatrical program. with the exception of the plate and spike, definitely home made.
