I just found this and I paid 100 U.S. dollars for I thought it was a good deal. I dont know to much about these or what model. It looks like in good condition for the most part. It is missing a rivet in the back but I think I can find one for it?. And no chin strap. For the age and what I paid for it I think it's not bad. No camo on it but the interior of it looks nice. It does have a marking in the shell and its s1.66 ? and b? 785? ? ? and some other numbers?. As you can see in the picture is marked 1917 so I assume it's a m-17 model. Could someone help me out with the history of it? and whats up with that liner with the dark stuff? someone burnt it? Also around the front of the helmet like where you would take it from your head, it's worn in that area, if you know what I mean, you can tell its bin taken off a lot.
And the value ? I know its hard to say and the pictures are the best I can do. Looks better in person. Nice green finish butr with wear of course. I dont think it sat the war out, the greyish like paint in the inside is nice I think. Im going to give it to my son if it's worth more then 100 bucks so he can keep it and sell it one day.. I know you all are the pro's so thats why i ask for your help, thank you.
