Description

The round painted insignia on this American made 1917 helmet, in colors of red, and white fields, with a blue six pointed stars might lead you to assume a headquarters design for the 6th Division, but I have been informed that is not the case. I have heard a cavalry unit mentioned, but really nothing definitive.

The painted insignia is original without question. The chinstrap has some writing and scratching on it in two places but I can’t make it out.

Full lining.

50mm diameter of insignia

Very good condition..
