Original Danish WWI Model 1923 Steel Army Medic Helmet with Helmet Badge

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. The M/23 helmet was a combat helmet issued to Danish troops during the interwar period and saw service in the Second World War. It was the first helmet to be issued to Danish Defense forces and was produced locally by the company Glud and Marstrands Fabriker.

These unique style helmets have never been plentiful. They were used in the vain attempt by Denmark to hold back the NSDAP invasion of 1940. Unfortunately, the Danes (along with most other Europeans at the time), presented little problem to the German Army, who rolled through Denmark and onto Norway.

This is an excellent example with original paint with substantial steel bowl construction with rolled edge. The most important aspect is the original WW2 helmet badge showing the coat of arms of Denmark. It is also painted on the sides with Red Geneva Crosses on a white background, the universal symbol for a medic. The liner looks to have been replaced post war, and is in very good condition.

This is a scarce helmet of the WW2 era that saw service against the NSDAP war machine.
