    Nice lid. Puts mine to shame. I think (could be wrong) that the Austrian transitional helmets are pretty hard to find vs the German 16/17/18.

    I see that you have already decided to part with it and posted in the classifieds. Will be a great addition to a collection IMHO.

    Thanks Michael,
    Honestly I wish I could keep it but I have to pay some bills.
    I feel honored and lucky to have owned this for a short time!
    It's a great piece

    Looks like a Steel liner band with the steel wire chinstrap bale (I could be wrong on this). But Maker / date should be stamped on the band by right chinstrap. I find that often the liners for these transitional do not fit so well and as such have a nice gap so you can easily read. Mine is an aluminum reinforced liner and is marked B&B 1939. And it's a single decal as well.

    Like I said earlier it's dated , if you can't read the date do not force it or the helmet price will go down. It's 1942-43 in my estimate.
    It's not really important to add to the description , it's a nice enough helmet it will sell for the right price.
