    Default WWI Austrian Helmet? Info needed.

    This helmet is going up for sale at a local auction. I mostly collect TR stuff but like any thing like this I can get a deal on. I was trying to figure out how you tell the differance in a WWI german helmet and WWI Austrian helmet is it the chin strap? Just wondering what you think this helmet is worth so I do not over pay? Most of the helmets like this I saw online have a leather chin strap unlike this one. Thanks for your help, Robert

    IMO a nice original M17 Austro-Hungarian steel helmet....see here for more information, http://www.warrelics.eu/forum/imperi...ian-m16-27203/ Worth more than an M16/17 German equivalent, at around Ģ400 ($600).
    Prost ! Steve.

    It would have been cool if they would have had decals back then. I guess there wasn't really point though. lol
