Very nice helmet Sandy at an excellent price! That being said, I think someone tinkered with the helmet since you can see that someone tried to repair the leather liner. I don't believe those chinscales are original to that helmet. Have the rosette prongs been bent a lot or are they bent incorrectly...

Sorry, I am adding to the confusion by using the term "NCO". I should have used the correct German rank of "Unteroffizier" when describing the uniform rank itself. In my particular grouping, this "Unteroffizier" is wearing the standard issued mannschaften pickelhaube with the standard issued cockade...

Thank you Lars!

The helmet would not be stamped to denote an NCO rank. This rank would only be denoted on the uniform itself with the lace trim.

Tony Schnurr has an excellent explanation of ranks and pickelhaubes on his site. Here is the link:
