German WWI M17 Steel Helmet with Leather Liner
New Made Item: A new production run is this is a high quality all steel German M-1917 Steel Helmet. It was copied from an original Stahlhelm M1917 in the IMA collection and comes very close to the real thing!
The shell is comprised of 1.8mm thick steel with rolled edge making this one of the most hefty and historically accurate M17's on the market today. It also has all the signature features including an early model genuine leather three tongue padded liner, correct aluminum liner helmet band, pickelhaube type thick brown or black leather adjustable chin strap with securing rings on the inside of the helmet bowl. Many helmets with this type of chin strap were later converted to the M18 standard, as the chin strap was prone to falling off. Later liner-mounted chin straps were far more secure, which is why the original configuration is rarely seen.
This M17 has the required ventilation horns also used for mounting a stirnpanzer sniper brow plate. Note- the only difference between this helmet and the M16 version is that the liner band is aluminum on the M17 and leather on the M16.
Sizing: One size fits most; this helmet comes with a drawstring leather liner, the liner is approximately from 7 (56cm) to 7 5/8 (61cm). Shell size: 68. Inner liner size can be adjusted with the addition or removal of the padding that is easily removed by untying the pocket closures.
