    Default French model 1926 helmet

    Given to me today by a friend of my next-door neighbour... a completely untouched example of the M 1926 Adrian helmet. This is likely to be pre-1937, as the the engineers badge is of the WW1 pattern. The liner is also very close in design and build to the WW1 2nd pattern. It came complete with cobwebs and resident spider. I can't find any stamps to the liner, but all the tongues are rather stiff and I don't want to cause any damage, so I'm not going to start pulling at anything. The next problem is deciding whether to keep it, as I don't really collect much WW2.

    Cool Score, That's a Nice-Looking Example you've got there...Adrians may not be rare, but an Adrian in Original, Complete Condition such as yours is a rare species these days for sure...and for Free!
