    Oh I love a good quiz, and my that helmet look's remarkably like the Gallet made prototype A Spectra Helmet trialed for the French Army, but is in fact a standard Gallet made M-92 with a liner system based on the CG634 however the French and Austrians both share these models all be it in a differing liner configaration , i.e the Standard F1 design as their standard composite helmet..did I win

    OK well.... I kinda cheated... as in parts... your all about right!!! ill put you all out of your misery...shall I!!!! .....
    The shell and liner is actually the Danish M92 version made by gallet, it originally had the Danish chin strap configuration, which I swapped out for a French F1 type as this is the same type the Austrians adopted.. as at the time.. and still to this day!! the original Austrian helmets are both expensive and hard to find !!
    I bought the Danish helmet for £20 and an old F1 steel pot for a tenner and "made" an Austrian spec lookalike which I'm very pleased with ...cost less than half the price I can presently get hold of a pukka one for ....and it fills a gap until the availability and prices are better on the originals!! the cover is original J.B. made Austrian issue....... worry not!!!!! I kept all the parts to convert both the other two helmets back to how they were intended!!!

    Hah, you have been doing interesting things while I was out of the room! The Betraying Detail was actually the label. Anyway, I got a couple of these some time ago and when dismantling them - I can't resist, though I often need to have my partner Catherine to help put them back together (she's far more capable than I am!) - I found the peculiar embossing shown here in the crown of the shell. Unquestionably the profile of a helmet, but why. Nothing like it in any other Gallet helmet I have.

    Love the embossed Helm device!!! i just quickly dismantled mine...... just to check.... and nothing!!!
    But...I wonder.. have you noticed the appearance in your photo of wording underneath!!! is.. it........ T.G. and then maybe even some on the helmet itself I.Y.C.!!!!! ....might be just a trick of the light!!???

    Thanks James like your French F1 with CCE cover!!! that's how my F1 came just before I "borrowed" the chinstrap for the Kampfhelm!!!
    I also have a new Bulgarian M51/72 which came with the same F1 cover!!! it fits terrible!!! but it was free with the helmet so I cant really complain!!!!!!
    will be on the look out for a correct cover at some stage either the splittertarn or perhaps the woodland (to be different!!)
