Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. Based on the French M1926 "Adrian" Helmet design, this is a very nice Peruvian Army Model of 1934 Steel Helmet. These were in use continuously from 1934 into the 1960s, and this example looks to be early production, and is definitely of some age.
The helmet is very similar to the Adrian helmet it was based on, except that the shape of the comb is a bit more pronounced towards the rear. It even has the same double slot attachment system for the front emblem, which in this case is the Peruvian "Sun Emblem" used historically by Peru.The helmet exhibits original paint, as issued, inside and out. It is lacking the internal liner completely, which is apparently not uncommon for these. All four liner supports are present and in good shape. The leather chin strap is also present, and in very good condition and unbroken.
 
The inside of the lined has painted what we believe to be a unit marking “2 A.B.” and a Spanish surname “Acosta”. A very interesting helmet from South America, ready to add to your collection!
