Probably the toughest set of scales to find, I have been lucky to find 1 loose set in 20 plus years.

Hi John,

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Pickelhauben-S ... 3159331145

Not sure if this is silver or brass but beware of this seller, not all original as claimed.

As James mentioned, they're probably the hardest set of chinscales to find (along with the curved silver mounted troops version as used on the 2-Hessian Cavalry Regiments, etcetera).

I have seen 2-sets sell on eBay (Germany & France) in the past 5-6+ years. They were both small size sets (for small size helmets) and in decent condition. I believe they sold in the $600-$700+ range back then.

Best wishes in your search.

Best Regards,

Alan
