That auction was for a whole lot of different parts for different helmets and from different nationalities. Auction house simply dumping similar items together for a lot.

Hello all!

To clarify... I think this is what Cliff is looking for... the plume spike that holds the plume and its attached rod to the top of the 1871 pattern dragoon helmet. He should, however, specify a regiment as there were some nuance differences between regiments particularly Yeomanry... white metal or brass, officer or trooper? The attached photos are from examples of a few of the 1871 pattern dragoon helmets in my collection... left to right... Royal Canadian Dragoons, Shropshire Yeomanry, Fife Light Horse, Hampshire Carabinieri, and Lothian and Berwick Yeomanry Cavalry.

Cheers,

David
