I tried to make sense of the seemingly thousands of Bavarian Kokarden once.
I gave up hope. There are just too many variations out there.
Raupenhelm are especially confusing.

Here are a couple of Raupenhelm examples.

Model 1868, Ludwig II, very similar to one pictured above (silver paint has worn away):

Model 1845, Ludwig II (this model was used until 1867), the Kokarde is wavy and small. It is also white and blue instead of silver and blue:
