    Hello Lassalle,

    This is a great French Adrian helmet in nice original condition. Only the inner cord for the leather tongues is missing.

    Congratulations on this find.

    Best regards
    Wolf

    PS: Did you attach the red thread to the chin strap hanger?

    Congratulations on acquiring a wonderful early horizon blue helmet Lassalle! I really like it! As many were overpainted in the much darker blue, I’m glad you could obtain this early example. French WW1 helmets have been a bit overlooked in the Militaria collecting field but I see this changing, actually the change is happening, so well done on preserving an original.

    Andy is right, the change is indeed happening. These 100+ years old helmets are more and more difficult to find in a decent shape, and it seems that many collectors also realised that. Much more difficult (for obviouses reasons) is finding an early Japy in the very first shiny blue paint like this one, great helmet.

    Indeed. Below is another early M15 from Japy, that underwent this fate (brush overpaint). The first (factory) light horizon blue color can be seen in the worn areas.
