    Default US type helmet...Any good?

    Hi Everyone,

    I usually just collect field-gear - but just saw this helmet - looks sort of like a US M1 type...

    Is this original? Postwar? What's the current value? (the seller is not really asking a lot for it)

    THX in advance!

    Not even a U.S helmet. Looks like a euro clone to me.

    $15 is a good price. I've seen them advertised as high as $75,
    although this one has been repainted.........
    Regards,

    It is likely German by the liner but the one I own looks a bit different, it may be a newer model.

    Thank you all for the replies.
    I'm pretty good with Hungarian WW2 (35M) helmets - I have some good pieces in my collection - and a German one... I lack knowledge with US and assorted clone helmets, so sorry for my ignorance

    It is indeed a a Bundeswehr steel helmet...If it has only 4 rivets on the shell it is an M1985 "Modifiziert Bodentruppenhelm" A1A........or it could be a converted version of the M1960 or M1962 1A1 helmet depending on how many rivets are on the shell, if 5 rivets it is an M60/85 or with 9 rivets a M62/85.......................$15 is indeed a bargain !
    Prost ! Steve.
