    Sorry to say, but judging by the bad pictures, I can only say it is a replica, with a fantasy plate.

    Hello

    I'm not sure is a fantasy plate, i think is this one on this partial image, at the moment the only one i found ( two storks and two lions ) is much like except for the dimensions ;

    Kris: Do you think replica because of the eagle?

    Hey Luke;
    I think so because of the whole construction of the helmet; to round on the visor part and not curved enough on the top! Finition of the leather also gives a clue.

    Thank you, Kris. I thought it looked very round but the details of the plate caught my attention. However I'm just a novice.

    Definitely a fake! It is suggesting to be a Inf.Reg. Nr. 93 Anhalt Dessau.

    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"!
