It looks fine by me, I saw several haubes like that with the riveted front and rear peaks in my reference books.

It is for sure a variant not easily found. I only saw them in my reference books, the one on your site I also saw Tony.
But I never saw one in the flesh. Or for sale.

Great looking helmets, gentlemen! Congratulations!

Here is my example which is also Depaheg Patent maker marked on the liner, and Depot Issue marked on the rear visor.

And a couple of super rare photos of this type of helmet being worn.

Here's a link to the original posting: https://www.pickelhaubes.com/xf/thr...-depaheg-patent-pickelhaube-being-worn.13712/

Here are the other helmets I bought that came from the family at the Minnesota show, and the wartime steel Prussian Bugle: https://www.pickelhaubes.com/xf/threads/helmets-walk-in-at-minnesota-military-show-in-st-paul.6440/

Best Wishes,
