    Does anyone know if it is an officer's 1915 pattern prussian haube?
    No, somebody has just added (incorrectly) Officer style Reich & state cockades.........but there was an Officers M15 version with detachable scales chinstrap & spike and all other Officer style attachments see here for images and explanation.... Model 1915 Preußen Officer's Pickelhaube as can be seen it did not have the Field Grey fittings !
    Oh and by the way Anton , leave it as is, do not clean, you will destroy its history !
    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."

    I just dust mine occasionally. No rubbing and
    definitely no brushes or chemicals.

    UPDATE.
    I finally got the correct cockades.
    Please confirm that for me.
    I intend to sell the officer's cockades to recoup my money (posted in another thread).
    Here are the updated photos.

    Very interesting and informative too, the site of Colonel J's Imperial German Pickelhaubes
    Colonel J's - Imperial German Pickelhaube Musings - Pickelhaube collections from the time of Kaiser Wilhelm II Colonel J's

    With best wishes
