The fluted spike was normal for Chevaulegers of all ranks . These Bavarian helmets were of notable quality included those of NCOs and Soldiers.

I desided to go for the trade ! I think pre 1897 due to only one cockade ? It’s a very small size . 

It was coated with major dirt and dust ! So as a 1st helmet I am not taking it apart so I cleaned it with a damp cloth and q tips just with warm water and wow what a diffrence !
