    The only part that might fit is the spike and even then, I am not shure.
    Do not try to restore thise in a hurry, take your time.
    I would sujest not to buy parts from the net, but take you helmet with you to a militaria fair, a dealer or a collector and see what would fit.
    Do not make holes in the helmet to make something fit, thise will reduce the price of your helmet!
    Keep in mind that thise helmets where made in different sizes, so the neck reenforcement (that more or less metal "S" shaped part!) will also come in different sizes.
    The front plate could be Bayern, Prussia,..or any other state; those holes and pins have also different positions.
    One size does NOT fit all!
