Austrian Transitional? Help needed
This was found in a box as shown.
I believe it is an Austrian transitional?
Green sand paint, leather appears to be marked 57, pot appears to be stamped 66 or maybe 994?
I humbly ask the experts their opinions?
Thanks You and Happy New Year

100% correct. Nice helmet.
A very nice looking lid. Congrats, and hope the new year is just as lucky for you. Great piece.
Thank you I am actually a little excited about this one I love the condition.
Iím guessing itís early? any reason why it would not have been a double decal?
Not sure I understand single and double decals on German combat helmets?
Probably will not be able to keep it but at least I got to own/exam it for a time.
Paint and decal style points to a 42-43 reissue. The liner date will help you if you can read it if not don't worry about it it will be 42-43 from most I have seen like this.
Thank you you cannot buy this knowledge!
That is a really great example, well done!
One of my favorite helmets.
Hi, well done, you have found a very nice HEER transitional helmet there. Leon.
