Heer M18, circa 1937-40

  • Heer M18, circa 1937-40

This M18 has been restored to reflect a retrofitted M18 of pre-war period. In this case the older WWI and Reichswehr paint would have been stripped so the helmet could have be repainted with the new army color. A number of firms in German won contracts to retrofit old WWI helmets for the expanding German army This helmet has been fit with a M31 aluminum liner, but still retains the M27 chinstrap of the Reichswehr era
