This is the helmet that started my fascination with World War 2 and my modest militaria collection. I received it about 15 years ago as a gift from my uncle.
I don't know too much about it... any additional information would be of great help!
I do know that it has an MSA liner AND fits my head great considering how humongous my melon is. When I first received the helmet the leather chin strap was missing. This past weekend I was able to obtain an authentic replacement from a vendor at the Reading WW2 weekend in Reading, PA. Hopefully that was a good move on my part...
I am a high school history teacher and have brought it in along with a few other helmets in my modest collection for my students... It was a tense situation as a handful of my students aren't always exactly the best behaved. With that being said, sharing the helmets with them was a hit and I'll continue to do so for years to come.
What do you guys think?!
