Swiss WW2 Helmet. Anyone give me any information?

Article about: I've never looked for one, but I have seen them on eBay, couldn't tell you if they were authentic or repos though. We were lucky, ours came with a cover.

    Correction on the model, it's actually a M1918/63. Sorry for the confusion.

    So does that mean it was made in 1963? Thanks again for all your help!

    No, it does not indicate the year that the helmet was made. the /40 and /63 indicate the years that changes were made to the design. In 1940 the shape of the shell was changed slightly and it want from a full liner ring to an open ring. In 1963 another liner change was made, omitting the eyelets and going to a folded seam where the adjusting lace pulls through. You might also see it written that there was a /43. This one is a matter of interpretation as in 1943 a directive was issued that all M1918's be painted matt black. No changes to the helmet or liner were made, just a color change so most would argue that it was not actually a "model" change.

    I got a 1918 for $30, including shipping. No real history to them, but a nice piece to any helmet collection.
