Original unknown unit insignia on this 1917 helmet
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.
50mm diameter of insignia
Very good condition..
