WW1 Painted Helmet

Recommended Posts

Just picked this one up today. I know a rivet & chinstrap aren't correct but for the price i could live with it..

 

Sweatband had an illegible red stamp & lot number is very hard to read.

 

Did the best i could for closeups on paint..

 

Would like to hear opinions.

 

Thanks Paul e835cef8dfadb716bacaa89ee8e6f8f5.jpgfea07306291eb9b6b519fc3ea3997112.jpg7a89e3cc887ac508cef257fdddfaa62b.jpgb6deea6a2b7e3566464db4dec6a082fe.jpgb7f1d6add1b07432fdd246e4e9329a45.jpg54b917271a28f8c99f61ee0e04aa4387.jpga05bfca5a62300f3f1277a0270f6811a.jpg518dfc2a4aec677676a4bd0b66838632.jpg8e51fa6ea62d0e8827054372767517c0.jpg8049cd3c4236f2e65ad5ee2e153748d4.jpg8186f1dcd6a292d815356023460a827b.jpgafad8c7940b5cef96ec8158503d2d9c6.jpg

Fantastic Helmet and this one is so reminiscent of the German ones. I have several of these but none as close as this one to it's enemies helmets.

 

Great find.

Thanks Wayne.

I noticed that when it arrived. Now I need to find its brother from another mother.

The helmet is British-made and it's not uncommon to see them with similar replacement rivets.  I suspect that at least some of the helmets the UK sold to the US were refurbished battlefield salvage.
