88th Div 350th Inf Posted January 8 Share #1 Posted January 8 I recently picked up this helmet off eBay for the cheap price of $30. I am not too sure what the paint scheme means. I do know that police departments would buy surplus m1917 helmets and paint them blue. I have done some research and have only found one other helmet with the same paint and markings. The seller said that he found the helmet near his home town of Hyattsville, MD. I would assume that the helmet was used by the Capital Police but I have not found any evidence to suggest that. I would like to restore the helmet for WWI reenacting, but I'm waiting until I find out if it is worth anything as is right now. If anyone could offer some insight regarding the helmet, I would much appreciate it! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
