    All nice helmets guys! Relicz, I always enjoy seeing that avatar. Any threads dedicated to it?
    Thanks Corey,
    There are two older threads on GHW - one when I found it and the other when I researched it and the group I discovered it with. Been meaning to do a re-shoot, but I am always on to the next discovery. I suppose I should share the research I have so far in a thread on this forum at some point. It has some interesting provenance.

    To bring an old thread back to life, the holes on this one I am sure are from it's service as a Czech Vz20 helmet between the wars. The Czechs received Austrian M17 helmets, and had a comb installed on the top. When it came to be reissued to the Wehrmacht these combs were removed and the holes welded up.
    I tend to agree Andy, the 3 hole pattern looks familiar.

    Reichss, are there also 3 holes at the back top centre of the shell?
    They may be hard to see sometimes, depending on the angle and light conditions.
