The Holy Crap of WW1 helmets


Recommended Posts

I've probably posted this picture before, but here's my pair. The WWI helmet stand is professionally made with cast iron parts and 3 French socket bayonets. I saw an identical one many years ago and still regret not buying it. The M1 is a pretty nice blacksmith piece.

I don't know...Can we get close-ups of the chain and some microscope pictures of the paint?

Thank you for title comments.

 

I found out that the paint was applied before the helmet was made.

 

I’ve seen that chain before but haven’t had the time yet to compare it to my chain inventory.

 

The bails are attached with split cogs.
