The legendary American M1 steel helmet saw active service from 1941 to the late 80's. It became the iconic piece of NATO headwear fashion - almost every Western country made their own versions of it. This Austrian helmet is special by the fact that it has different size liners.

The M1 steel pot saw use in every conflict from WW2 to the 80's, and was issued to some troops even in the first Gulf War in the 90's, although by that time the new PASGT system was the norm. Of course, as they tend to, the National Guard probably used these longer. When WW2 was over and NATO was formed, most member countries adopted the M1 helmet and made their own variations of it. These Austrian pots retain the key elements of the US model: the same distinctive shape, the two-part construction, but with the exception of different sizes for the helmet liner.

Size info

The Austrian Bundesheer retained the tradition of leather suspension and a simple size system with three sizes: 54-55, 56-58 and 59-61. The steel shells are mostly Belgian, but there might be others mixed in.

Genuine army surplus

Mostly used. They are all still very serviceable. Not sold for any actual protection purposes.

I received my helmet this morning! The helmet was in pretty good condition, a small (really, it was small) dent was on the top of the helmet and the paint was not even; nothing a little TLC can't fix. The liner was in pretty good condition for being made in 1953 and it fit perfectly. I highly recommend this product; aside from the liner it is almost indistinguishable from a U.S. production helmet.
