    I got this item in payment for a snowblower repair, I had $10 in the snowblower. So, I got this WWI German helmet for $10. Anyone know much about these? I was told its a infantry helmet before Germany went to the steel helmet. Its DATED 1918, Stamped in the back part of the helmet with I assume is the manufactures mark.

    Iv seen several of these helmets, Some have a leather liner like mine, and some have a differnt style liner, more a snug fit helmet I assume. Does anyone know which style is older?

    Thanks, Dan

      Hi Dan
      Nice Prussian nco helmet,it is only missing the chinstrap and cockades (national
      colors)I would say you could get between $300-400 on todays market since it is an nice and honest piece.
      Best regards
