Austrian M34 Factory Police Helmet - Steyr
There are many fake factory Police helmets out there. This is NOT one of them. I know where this one has been since about 1990. It has been in hand vetted by Al Barrows. It is an Austrian square dip unmarked shell, with a typical Austrian style liner, and has another one of the odd ball carbine clip chinstraps that I have only seen on Austrian made M34 shells. During the War Steyr manufactured myriad War related products, including weapons, ammo, staff cars and I am sure other items as well. This helmet is named, the paint is in great shape, and the decal is over 95% intact. I think it is one of the more desirable factory Police helmets. Hope you like it. Jim G.

Nice helmet Jim.
I also like those clips.
I also have one with this type of clips but on a commercial M18
A rare piece Jim, although that factory insignia would make a great target! Leon.
