    A golden rule when buying composed pickelhaube plates is; the top plate should never conceal the text (or parts of it!) on the "bandeau".
    When I say "conceal" I mean in a way you can't read it!
    Also give attention if it say's "Koenig" or "Furst" and so on...
    I bet the plate on the helmet showed in the first image says "Koenig"!
    Says; mit gott
    Have a lot of possibilites to be a fake

    Thanks a lot for the info

    Cheers

    They all start with Gott, but it is what comes next!That is what I mean by conceald.
    Take the plate from the helmet and look at the reverse.

    I would not worry about disassembly on this helmet, as you can not cause any damage resulting in loss of worth ! as it is a poor reproduction and as such is not worth much ! Did you buy it thinking it was original ? if so, return to vendor as soon as possible for refund.
    Prost ! Steve.

    I'm with Kris and Steve, the complete thing is 100% fake and made to get your hard earned money out of your wallet! ;-((
    If you want to go further in pickelhauben, I would strongly advice that you invest some money in a few good books, check out some good sites and inform yourself very well, before spending money on these awfull fakes. Just my thoughts...
