Saxon Reserve Officer. The Landwehr cross is behind the state crest.  Both are in silver on top of a gilt star.

Saxon and Reich's non-serrated cockades.

There are two notable things in this helmet.  The spike itself is a whopping 13cm tall. This is far higher than the regulation and is as tall as any in my collection. The liner is Awes-Marke but without any of the premium markings. (Characteristic threading on the leather.)So I would say a mid or lower level helmet.
