My Stalheim...

Recommended Posts

Hi Gents

I picked this up a while ago. Described as Austrian.

As the chinstrap is not the lower mounted German style I agreed but  ...

It seems since that  I have only seen ones with a lower chinstrap rivet placing.

As 50% of my assumptions are optimistic but incorrect I'm curious to find out If this is AH.

It is my favourite of my helmets (of course!) it has some of the original paint and only surface rust but the liner has not survived. I think the 2 little holes by the right hand rivet are possibly later  - perhaps to enable fitting of a replacement liner.

Hello!

It looks like austrian, but I´m not s specialist.

But I´d like to play teacher...

A steel-helmet is called "Stahlhelm", not Stalheim. :):cheers:
