Austrian or Weimar Stahlhelm? Or what?

Recommended Posts

Spotted this at the Antika pazar, and bought it thinking - what is it? Clearly not a German M17 or M18, with the extra rivets holding the chin-strap loops in place, and certainly not a WW2 thing with those bolts on the side. Looks to be close to an Austrian M17, or is it Weimar? Or some foreign piece? I did consider it might be a reproduction - is it? If so, then no great loss as it cost me only TL 100 = £14.00...!!!

 

Sorry for the poor photographs - I can try to get some better ones some day soon... It fits my kids' heads at size 56, as marked inside.

 

Anyway, whatever it is, even if a reproduction, all help and information greatly appreciated!

Now, that's odd! I had an e-mail notification of a reply from Andrew Upton yesterday but it hasn't appeared here yet! It gave me an excellent link - 

 

"Looks like a typical late interwar rework of a M1918 or similar - have a look through: "https://alexanderandsonsrestorations.com/whats-inside-german-helmet-liners-1920-1940/

 

Thanks Andrew - but where has your reply gone to?

I posted a reply, went to edit it, and my computer threw something of a wobbly in the middle and I had to close it down. So not sure exactly... :mellow:
