Default Finnish?

Forum Members, I saw these helmets on the internet and was wondering if they are WW1 German/Austrian helmets reused by the Finnish?.....Any thoughts appreciated.....Bodes

Looks like they have the holes for the Afghan insignia. Quite a few of these have found their way (via our troops) to the States in recent years.

Chip, Interesting...I did not know these found their way to Afghanistan...These two were sold on the goodwill auction site, so they were donation items....Bodes
