    Hi Nick,the metal on the shell looks in good nick, are you taking the helmet back to square one ?. that should look great, I dont want to put a damper on it, but i have seen 35 / 40 Patt, helmets with a comb on them, they go from top down the back and were use by German fire units.

    Hope this helps?

    i showed these pictures to someone i know & he said much the same as Panzer 3 did

    That was probably converted into a fire helmet by the Czech (or other country) after the war, the three holes would have held the 'ridge' piece in place! You also get them with 2 small holes on the front and again a fire service conversion!
