The back story of these helmets is that they were captured by U.S. Doughboys.  Kaiser Wilhelm II had shipped those helmets in anticipation of a victory parade in Paris.  I read about these helmets in a 1919 edition of a U.S. newspaper.  There used to be a free Google newspaper archive, but it has since been discontinued, but I would research original newspaper articles about The Great War.
