    Default Early SA M17 helmet

    I belive this is a Early SA M17 helmet before they had decals.
    It was Just pick-up out of Texas , first time in a collection.
    Under the Brown paint there is a WW1 camo ,you can see the Black out line coming out from under the brown paint.
    No liner ,just bee nest.
    There is also no unit markings.
    The brown paint is hand painted with brush.

    Nice pot Chris, I'd say it has a great chance of being an early SA. Congrats.

    I know bugger all about SA helmets, but the patina of that overpaint gives it credence, and as Andy say's, a great chance.

    Chris, are there any maker marks ? for example "ET 66"............Similar shade of brown used by Austro-Hungarian forces in WW1.
    Prost ! Steve.

    I was not able to find any markings the brown paint make it hard to see.
    The paint is a very heavy tick paint.The brown color is the same has the one I posted.
    the Austro Hungarian helmet color is more brown green color (mustard)

    I think it has a good chance. I suppose its hard to say 100%. With helmets like these you either believe it or you don't. I believe it.

    The WW1 camo under the brown paint would be something that they would have done.
    They used what ever helmet they could find.
    The color of the shell is right on of SA.
    But no guaranty,still a very different helmet.
