    Looks fine finding the chin strap might be a wee bit hard but overall looks like a good ww1 spike helmet

    Prussian Enlisted Man's Pickelhaube, makes a nice display...Repro chinstraps are easily found for these.
    cheers, Glenn

    Kemi.....a perfectly good original Pickelhaube, a Prussian line infantry Model 1915 (M15) with twist off spike and grey phosphate fittings, it has its original liner...in reasonable condition, as this model helmet is renowned for its fragile construction.....it is missing its chinstrap and both its Prussian and Reich cockades, these helmets are going up in price as we approach the centenary of the Great war...worth about "Ģ250-300 (300-350 Euro) you will find it almost impossible to find an original chinstrap, most collectors use a good replica.
    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."

    The only place I know for chinstraps would ge Great War Militaria out of Chambersburg, PA They had quite a few at one time I purchased one from them. Great wartime Pickelhaube. timothy

    Would like to thank everyone so much for the help. I did get this helmet for 300 Euro, I thought it was a reasonable price
