Help! German Helmet.

Postby The Devils Bank » Sat Jan 26, 2019 11:01 pm

Can any one here, identify this helmet?

Cost me a tenner, from a mate in work, who says "you collect crap, do you want this?" :shock:

The vents seem a trifle odd..

Is it a post war copy?

Any sign of a loop bracket on the back Pete? If so could be Hungarian.

No markings at all? The helmet looks in good shape so probably not German and post war made. Regards Mark

A expert? on these things says this:

"It's a rare unfinished job, note the primer and the vent hole that's not been fully drilled out. So it's all good"!

I'm happy witht that :grin:

Got a liner on the way, going to get it painted up and fill with bird seed and let the furry flying things have some dinner.

Should be good to see how they react to their new food bowl :grin:
