    Default Looking for any information on this helmet.

    I found this in my attic. What research I've done, it appears to be a "Doughboy" helmet? Any information on history, dates, value would be greatly appreciated. There's a stamped "2D 15" or
    "ZD 15" underneath the brim. I found an ink marking underneath the head band as well. Its very difficult to tell what it reads.

    Thank you so much!

    your correct, it is a US Doughboy helmet M1917

    it looks like it's in pretty good condition

    prices vary depending on condition or any special unit insignia or original camo
