QUESTIONS... Pre95 Prussian Pickelhaube Fittings

So I picked up a helm with this literal hodge podge of parts astrewn all over the shell and there appears to be a pre95 screw on wappen, a pre95 spike, white metal chinstrap post (only 1), a reichskokarde, and a 15cm brass scaled chinstrap half.

My main questions are which specific helm is this scaled chinstrap for (I know there are a few different styles), and are there vent assemblies that don't have a loop at the top to connect onto the rear spike rivet prongs? This vent assembly doesn't have a loop at the top and I just wanted to check if this is just plain busted or if there are vent assembles that don't have a loop because idk to be honest...
Thanks!
Also the helm shell is a literal disaster...

H: Your chin scale has convex scales therefore......mounted troops. There is nothing wrong with your rear spine, it is complete, except for a missing nut on the screw post. The tang on the end slides under the spike base and that secures it. Some have loops others like this do not. The Reichs kokarde is for an Officer helmet. If you are looking to sell these parts, I would be interested.

I can sell the chinstrap, the reichskokarde and the white metal chinstrap post and then I have some other wappens, kokarden, and spikes and helms as well.

You should make some posts in the for sale section! I know I am looking for a few pieces at the moment as well.
