    Default What kinda helmet have i got here ?

    Hello friends.. Some days ago iīve got myself this helmet in exchange.. Itīs a Brodie Helmet, thatīs clear, but where does it come from? What might be itīs age? I live in El Salvador, so it must have an interesting history. There is no remaining liner, but an interesting stamp at the inner side of the rim, it says ZF 236.
    Any comments to that one??

    Thanxz..

    Hi, it's an American made WWI era "tin hat". You can tell it is U.S. by the rivet holding the chin-strap loops. Check out my thread on Sgt. Kurth of the Reserve Mallet to see his English made Brodie helmet. As to how it got down your way? The US made thousands of these helmets and they were sold as surplus all over the world.

    hi there if im not mistaken i think it might be a kelly helmet that was issued after ww1 and the early parts of ww2 i have one just like it and the bail for the chin strap looks identical to a kelly's helmet one. - nick k
