Post by jake1708 » Tue May 05, 2020 5:40 pm

Am looking for a fluted M15 spike for my Mecklenburg helmet if any one has or knows of one.

It never hurts to ask and we do have a world wide membership here. Even without that spike, that is a very rare helmet. Another positive, it has it’s original Meck Kokarde :thumb up:

When it comes to parts, patience and persistence is a must, I have had many parts I thought I would never find, and with constant searching and some good collector friends have found many of them.

Good luck searching!

Actually, funny story....I was actively looking for an East Asian Spike for the last 3 years...you know, the one with no holes on the base and a threaded rod down the center (pretty much impossible to find!). I thought I would never see one...but one came up on Ebay Germany. I communicated with the guy to see if he would ship to Canada.....but the time he got back to me in about less than an hour it was sold :(

But I learned that if you are patient you will eventually find what you are looking for !

Wishing you the best of luck. Make sure you get a genuine Mecklemburg spike, and not a bavarian one for instance.

Always willing to help in such a case!
No need to wait, it can always be send to me, and I send it to you.
It will cost you the extra charge to have it get to me, but no time wasted.

The chances of finding a Bavarian fluted gray metal are almost the same as the Mek !

I was offered a Prussian M15 Dragoner recently unfortunately, missing the spike top and crown off the wappen. Twenty plus years ago, I did find an M15 wappen to complete a JzP helme. However, at this stage in life, I am not willing to take on another quest. :)

Not that mine was spike-less, but I was glad to find one before getting the helmet!
This helmet got two spikes now. :D
And looks good with any of them, but I do like him most with the flutted one.

Thanks for the replies, might try and find a standard m15 spike for it until I’m lucky enough to uncover a fluted one! Am I right in thinking that the late production m15 helmets had the standard spikes on instead of fluted because they were easier to manufacture?

Possibly, but many collectors would desire the original fluted spike...
