Here gentlemen is the next project. Another prussian line officer I purchased online. Just needs a chinstrap and cockades. Wish me luck!

I really hate to tell you this --- but that's the wrong spike.

These are just the parts it came with in the lot. What would the proper spike be? Im more than willing to hear out constructive criticism for the sake of the piece and its history

It shouldn't have a fluted spike.
Check this website out, if you haven't already:

I will look into buying one! Maybe if you have a spare one it could be included in our pm discussion. I couldn't use that spike anyways as the screw is broken out of it

Here's a place that has a lot of that kind of stuff. Usually pretty reasonable.
