    Default Can someone help me identify the model of this German Helmet?

    I am not sure if it is WWI or newer. I see no markings anywhere and there are traces of white and red paint (which obviously may have come much later). I have a feeling someone thought it was too rusty and may have buffed everything away. Mainly I am just interested in what model you think it might be.

    Produced during WW1, also used during the interwar years and then some were refurbished and used during WW2. I see two coats of what appears to be feldgrau paint but no evidence of TR decals ever being added (from what I can see).

    The red and other paint you see may have been
    stripped back, but I like what I see.........

    Steel liner band is indeed later - so it is a Model 18. Also, it is a larger size based on the air vent size. Look in the skirt for manufacturer code and size. 66 or 68 I would guess. NH

    I was finally able to find the mark. It is very faint, but what I can make out is "W66," which I take to mean "Hermann Weissenburger & Co., Stuttgart-Canstatt?"

    Thanks for everyone's help!

    There may also be a stamp on the inside dome for the producer of the steel.

    MAP, You are correct. I see "E485" and the rest is unreadable.

    I don't have it handy but there is a site (one of the major dealers) that lists who this would be. Maybe others have the link and can chime in. Or when I return home in a few days I can find it.
