    Default Helmet - Heer Transitional M-17 Double Decal Helmet

    Lid Guys,

    This one was passed down from Opa's collection about 10 years ago and I was taking a look at it the other day. Thought I would post.

    Heer Transitional M-17 Double Decal Helmet that was requisitioned back in the early 1930s from the leftover stock from the Imperial period. The helmet has the Frankenstein style air vents. It has been painted a field green. Am I correct that the liner was changed to the M-31 type? There is a size stamped in the helmet but I cannot read what it is. The chinstrap is in real nice condition and liner looks to be the real deal as well and in sound shape.

    What do you think of her? How much are these selling for these days in this condition? Look forward to your response.

    Hi, looks like a good transitional helmet to me, as to value others may know better than me as I have never really looked to buy the transitional lids. Leon.

    Nice lid! I'm guessing the whole liner/chinstrap assembly has been changed out latewar or even thereafter, note the RB numbered chinstrap and the square chinstrap bales. I guess the date on the steel liner can't be read?

    Never did I think I would say this, but that is a beautiful tranny It just oozes character and has that look of age that can't be duplicated.

    Rossi,

    I have a single decal m17 Austrian transitional. Will look up what I overpaid for it when I return. Not an exact comparison however

    Hey Kirk

    A nice helmet. The strap is a fake. Probably added at some point to complete the helmet. Liner looks ok. Not sure if it's been replaced.

    How old do you think the strap is? Who does the maker denote with the RB Nr code? Date of manufacturing? Any idea? Thanks bud!
