I had seen this online, I believe it is an ecuatorian pickelhaube, but I have my suspicion about the plate. The plate seems in too good a condition as compared to the helmet, I'm not knowledgeable enough to definitively deduce what this helmet is, any information is appreciated.

Unfortunately in museums it is quite common to encounter irregularities, pay attention to the spike mounted with a cut-out in front.Regards

This is a helmet from the Ecuadorian Military Academy! The plate is brightly plated with some damage, but I think its probably original to this helmet...
