    Wink Please ID this German pickel haube helmet with a weird spike

    Hi folks,
    I collect weapons, not helmets. A buddy found this at his father in law garage.
    We would like to have some more info on this helmet.
    Yep, WW1 German? so far i know but some good detailed info would be nice.

    Is it for the Heer, or Navy.
    Is it rare?
    Is it WW1 or earlier?
    Is it a valuable object or just another helmet?

    Thanks
    Paco

    Looks like somebody took a fire helmet and put a shield on it . Gary

    Actually I think that the Helmet is good but has the wrong front plate (wappen) on it.
