click for an even bigger image



A WWI Model 1917 combat helmet that clearly was never issued or worn. The exterior paint is essentially 95% intact, although it has some scuffs, spots, and surface dirt as a result of storage over the last 100 years. The interior liner is complete and unworn. The full interior paper label remains completely intact. The leather chin strap is also present and complete. The leather remains bright brown, and the impressed size of "7" can still be clearly read on the dome section of the leather strap.
