Prussian Private Soldiers Pickelhaube

Flag_of_the_German_EmpireHere is a NCO or Private soldiers Pickelhaube from the 16th Prussian Infantry Regiment. The helmet is marked 1896, frequently the last inspection date. It is also marked IR.16 1896 2C I.G. and something like R?6961B. The old guy I bought it from said his uncle had got it after WW1 when he subscribed to a War Bond drive in New York.
