    Redgemak, not all WW1 Austro-Hungarian helmet shells were marked with a mm or a heat/lot number, unlike their German counterparts.....a "64" shell would usually have a small "step up" on the air vent lug...I wonder if it was remarked when refurbished in its later life....
    "The German Army is the perfectly adapted, perfectly running Machine. The difference is that the Germans are organised with a view to War...with the cold, hard, practical and business-like purpose of winning victories."

    If you tell me what to measure I will comply (sounds like a Borg)

    If you can get some pictures of the interior especially the linerband and chinstrap bales I might be able to give some insight if this is postwar painted or not. I suspect it was postwar painted for some purpose along with the insignia.
