I am looking for a rear spine for a Prussian tin kit helmet.
If anybody has one please let me know.

Remember rear spines come in sizes.

I know that is true for a standard M95 or M15 helmet.
I am not sure if the rear spines for tin kit helmets were sized.
From what I have seen it seems that the rear spine on kit helmets just sits lower on the rear neck guard on smaller sizes than it does on larger helmets.
Regardless --- the helmet I have is not marked but appears to be a size 55 or 56.

Hey John, I don't have the rear spine for kit helmet. They are sized as well I have about 5 kit helmets and the sizes are different. The rear spine sit lower and they have two screw posts, one near the tip and the other one at the bottom.

How did you manage to get a kit helmet without the rear spine, did someone take the rear spine out?

It came with a regular M95 vented spine.
Probably a modification made by the person who brought it back???

Helmet 2, rear spine touches the spike base, I somehow think this one is incorrect.

Helmet 5, most interesting of all.

No rear spine and no evidence of any holes drilled on the steel body or the visor.

I think finding ones of these may be an impossible task.
With a little help this may work.
It is selling on the French e-bay.
