Here's the first spiked helmet I ever held, it actually belongs to my brother-in-law, but we've been taking care of it since 1977. An OR helmet to Garde Grenadier Regt #5 and stamped BAG 1907.

Owned one of these helmets as part of my JzPf collection. It was OD green inside and out, small OR cocards, leather chinstrap and leather and horsehair liner. It was also marked 8 J.P. on the back trim.

A lightweight helmet. If I find a photo of my helmet I'll post it.
