Happy Holidays to all!
I am about to list my afghan helmet for sale but I don't know the exact model German or Austrian helmet that this is. I purchased this helmet in 2007 from a guy in Fresno who had a batch of these that he purchased from a soldier serving over there and this one was one in the best condition. The badge is a reproduction badge I purchased to put into the empty holes that were on the left side as per its contemporary use by the Afghan Army. Everything else is original as it came out of the ground. In remarkable condition overall with the liner firmly in place and undamaged and pliable. I have never tried to remove the liner to look underneath for clues. Chinstraps are in the same condition and look locally made? Can anyone identify the shell so I can properly describe the helmet in the description, please. The paint is thick and am unable to see any stampings in the metal. I will post what photos I have now and if you want more detailed ones, I will happily take some more. Thanks to all.
