Re: THE Austrian SS.
No surprises, always learning! Once someone says they know it all is when the day they bought their first fake. We are all human and the knowledge well is deep indeed but always more water to be found by digging deeper! I cannot say when this firm stopped making these helmets, I would guess 1918-19. Perhaps many were commercially produced up until 1934-5? There were so many WW1 pattern helmet makers far more than WW2 and TR era and I have not studied that in detail, and not near my reference books tonight.
