Re: i need HELP!!

Amy,

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.

Dosty, That is a very nice helmet! Without being able to see the inside of the helmet behind the horsehair I can only guess that your helmet has suffered a cascade failure of all the solder points and the tail is just being held on by the brads. There should be 3 solder points where the tail is sold...

Garlanj,

I also do not see a problem with the liner.

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.

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:
