    No worries. The post was perhaps a bit confusing to read through. My apologies.
    I tend to be carried a bit away when dealing with one of my primary areas of collecting.
    It is a shame, that most of the literature on this helmet is in Danish. It's certainly quite the language barrier to breach.

    I can only stress, that your helmet is a nice honest example. Most of the M23-41's were refurbished in the 1950s and 60s, and it just adds another layer to each and every helmets long service history. However, if you need one that has not had its liner changed I would be honoured to help you out.

    The Danish Weapon Historical Society (founded 1932) publishes a yearbook every year. The 2003 edition (no. 48) has a lengthy and in-depth article on the M23 helmet. It is alas in Danish. But if any of the Danish members of the forum stumbles on this post, it is worth a read.

    It has some very nice pictures of the original drawings from the patent office, and some nice period photos not seen on the internet before. I will try to make a scan in the new year.

    If you really want to collect these, I can reveal there is a number of different variations: (At least for the military version)

    M/1923, M/1923/24, M/1924, M/1924/25, M/1924/29, M/1924/29/38, M/1924/29/39, M/1926, M/1926/29, M/1926/29/38, M/1926/29/39, M/1929, M/1929/38 and finally M/1929/39.
