Did you remove the left side chinscale and cockade to see if there are any regiment stampings?

I see that it did indeed have a kurrasier spike attached to it at some point because of the drill holes.

It looks like an original and it may have not been issued to the helmet originally but may have been replaced at the depot due to wear, damage, etc.
