Austrian M17 helmet?

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys

Whats your thought about this one? I bought it thinking it was an Austrian helmet but it seem the color is wrong, any ideas?

 

Thanks

Bjorn

Hi Björn!

 

I'm not a helmet-expert, but this one seems a genuine M17 Austrian one to me too!

Let's hear, what other members have to say...

 

Kind regards, Peter

It looks good to me too, I'm not sure what the green paint is for but it certainly looks original and period. Maybe Reichswehr? Great liner and Austrian strap too.
