    Mine was an M16/17 which cost me £5 around 1980ish.

    Looks like a lot of ww1 helmets were the first helmet.

    In the 70's my brother & I had WWII helmet Liners (we played army & thought they were helmets) but the 1st official was a WWII fixed-bail M1 shell- has since been given a proper period liner.
    I probably got that one about 2009/2010.....many more since

    My first was this M35. I bought it 50 years ago from an add in Popular Mechanics fro about $15.00. I think one of my brothers added the decal. Otherwise, untouched as long as I have had it. Have a few more now.

    A M16 shell I think. I sold it on to pay for a cap.

    Cheers, Pat
