Thank you, everyone, for your comments. Yes, this is the best helmet I have ever had in my militaria collection. I believe a post opined that mint pickelhaubes such as this one were most likely purchased by soldiers on Urlaub or vacation from the front for a wedding and not worn again due to the owner's demise or after the collapse of the Holerzolen Dynasty.
Best regards,
John

Coert,
Thank you very much for the comment. This helmet is by far the nicest I have owned, and adding a few era items tells the pickelhaube's story a bit better.
Best regards,
John
