Helmet, M-1917, US Army


Very nice genuine WWI US M-1917 helmet. In 1917, the British regulation steel helmet, known as the 'Brodie' helmet, was adopted by the US Army. The liner was subsequently replaced by a new type and a webbing chinstrap featuring a quick-release hook superseded the leather version in 1936 -- the M-1917 helmet thus became the M-1917A1. The latter remained in service until the introduction of the modern M1 helmet in 1941.

The present M-1917 is complete and retains its original liner and leather chinstrap. Shell is marked ZC 196. Size 7.
