While the shells are original WW1 manufacture, these have since been refitted with new suspension and chin straps in Finnish service They have also been repainted with gray or greenish-gray, sometimes in multiple layers so the original stamps are hidden under.

In modern times these were bought from the Finnish army, then shipped to the USA, then shipped back to Finland. We got some amounts of these, and they're sold off in small lots while we dig through them. Once the whole bunch is gone, that's it.

Size info

These have either a three-pad lining or a slightly newer full leather one (both pretty old). Sold as "one size".

Condition

Used, but mostly intact. As said, the liner has been replaced by the Finnish army at some point. Its condition varies, along with the chin strap, but it's always quite intact. Additionally, having had a looong service life, the shell might have small dents and scratches or rust stains. Overall these are pretty nice. The old chin strap attachments are not in use anymore, and one or both of them might be missing.

Not sold for any actual protective purposes, only as a collectible.

It is everything I hoped for. The paint is a little chipped in spots and the leather strap is a bit dry, but the overall steel is in good shape. Not rusty, from what I see. I got one with the older 3 pad lining. Suspension works well. Overall, a great collection piece and in great shape, considering the shell is just over a century old.

Very very happy with my purchase, I’ve bought a great many items from Varusteleka over the years, this is one of my favourites.
I am a collector, these arrive in good serviceable condition but at the same time are well used have been repainted at least a few times and have an amazing patina.

These are so cool. I really hope they stick around long enough for me to save up and buy one.
Edit: Between spontaneous discovery of a cool 300 dollars and a paycheck, I have ordered one. I am elated.
