B.loree. thanks for the reply.True M but trust me, they do come up for sale, you just have to be patient. Many of us here have waited decades before finding a particular part to complete a helmet. It’s all part of this game. Smart for you to make a post here, as I for one will now be on the lookout.
Thankyou for the response Pickelhauben. I also regularly check those eBay's, but I missed the spike! There is a Polish site that does good quality reproduction parts for Pickelhaubes, spikehelmets.pl but it seems the one I want is the only one they don't do, which is handy. I'd prefer a genuine original spike but a reproduction would do until one comes along. But it seems it's just as hard to find a reproduction!I check the French ,German and US ebay every day.
There was a lose spike that came up last week on the French site.
They sell for around $125
Watching that one , thanksThere is one that just went up for sale

Hi garlanj. I bought the spike you notified me of on the 19th. Today I get a message from the seller telling me he's cancelled to order because it'll cost to much to send and he I might say I never received it!There’s one on the French eBay at the moment for 116€. The item number is 275027576354, not sure the colour will match though
