    Hi everyone,

    Recently I got this transitional re-issued K.u.k. helmet. The weird thing with this helmet is the placement of the rivet holes and the 'horns' aka vent holes. I have two of these K.u.k. helmets and both have this weird placement. Compared with German produced helmet who are nicely geometric in the placement of the holes and vent holes. I also looked at some pictures of K.u.k. helmets and discovered the same production flaw. But since this looks more common than bad production standards I wonder if someone knows something more about this strange phenomenon?

    I'm looking forward to your comments.

    Never seen that before. Odd as it is not a one off as you say.

    Nice helmet!
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    You would think these wouldn't survive inspection in the factory in the first place. But now it survived WW1 Austrian inspection and later on was accepted in the Wehrmacht. It is stamped in the liner 1935 so pre-war. But as I noticed, other Austrian helmets do have similar defects. You'll see.

    Hi,
    I was curious would that mean that the german factories would sell the defective steel helmets that wouldn't pass inspection for the Imperial german army to the Austro- Hungary rather then recycling them?
    With best regards,

    These were produced by Austrian/Hungarian factories. The M17 wasn’t produced by Imperial Germany to my knowledge.

    who says it was used in WW1 , could have been put aside and deemed ok for early TR use.
