    i would tend to think that it was a helmet that defence forces wore defending the mauser works.this was i think a common thing to have the name of the works on their helmets.although it would be nice to think it was made by mauser themselves.

    Yeah I'm doubtful it was made by them. I believe these helmets were made by other makers then the standard ones that made the combat helmets (not positive) but not mauser or any of the other factories. The names put on the helmets more or less represented what factory and such place it was worn at.

    Hi Las Vegas & Miahurricanes83
    Thanks a lot for sharing your opinions.
    Even it's not made by Mauser,is it still much more valuable than the similar common helmet?

    Helmets are really just my hobby, I do check prices daily on combat helmets but there are others on here that deal in military items and could give you a much better answer then me on the value. I've seen some of these civil defense helmets go for quite a bit but generally a good combat helmet will sell for more. I think your looking in the range of a couple hundred dollars but these are no where near my interest when it comes to helmets so someone please correct me if I'm wrong.

    Its called a square dip civilian defence Helmet.
    It was used by Police as well and came in many varietys.It was also for factory defence of course and yours would have been used in the original Mauser factory works and greatly sought after:-)

    Hi Kevin,
    Sorry mate for some reason i had to enter my details to reply.The Helmet you have is indeed worth wartime value money as it was used in the actual factory

    To give you a good example any one found here with fire or police decals complete with liner sell for about AU$350
