Oppinions on M17

Article about: Sounds good to me, I paid I think 400 euro for my example which from memory is an M16. I like especially the remains of Ypres mud in the vent lug.

    Default Oppinions on M17

    Hi guys,

    What's your opinion on this M17.
    It seems it has been camo painted !?

    I see a faint camo job there. Looks to have had a glossy coat of some sort though. Liner looks odd to me as well, but may very easily be a type I have never seen (I honestly haven't seen a lot).

    I agree......................investigate the liner leather pads, some one may of stuffed/poked them behind the metal liner band which looks to be original, probably thinking they were making the helmet more acceptable, I have seen it done before (originally they were crimped onto the metal liner band) when in reality it would better of as a shell with a liner band !
    Otherwise a nice helmet mm "Si 66", "Eisenhuette Silesia", of Paruschowitz, Oberschlesien.....they only made two sizes of shell a 62 & 66.........the other marking on the inside of the crown of the helmet "Bi630" is a heating lot code, indicating the rolling mill the steel came from, in this case the rolling mills at Oberschlesien, Bismarckhutte.
    Prost ! Steve.

    Personally, I'd pull that liner out of it and leave it as a nice camo shell with the metal band...

    Nice shell with possibly a shellack coating. Does the paint smell at all?

    Thanks for all the comments :-)
    Glenn, I dont know, cause it is a helmet I consider, and have not seen it in hand !
    But you guys have the same (bad) feeling about the liner as I do, so I will probably leave this one :-/
    It has a starting price at 100 euros and a "buy now" price at 250 euros, not too bad I think !?

    That seems a reasonable price for a good sound helmet.
