    Default A new addition to my collection but what is it ?

    Hello everyone,

    I have bought this helmet recently on a bit of an impulse buy, I think its WW1 era but confused around irish ? vickers ? etc or possibly transitional ??

    and is the paint genuine ? why is it green underneath ?

    After much research and not many answers your help would be greatly appreciated.

    Well, it looks like either German or Austrian, WW1, with some paint of unknown origin. Nice looking relic, from what I can tell. To me, it would look good in my collection, as I don't yet have a WW1 lid. But then, WW1 is not really my area, so wait for other, better opinions.
