Default WWI Austrian Helmet

It has been awhile since I've posted a WWI German or Austrian helmet. Between work, house renovation, and WWI USMC (2nd Div) collecting, I've managed to pick up a few. This one is an AW64 / L107. A little rough, but I don't mind.

I always enjoy seeing a nice helmet. I get a kick out of all the funky civilian materials that the Germans and Austrians were down to using in 1918. That's some pretty unique cloth! I have a late war Bluse with a civilian cloth lining (black with white pinstripes) and it's an issue piece. They had to sew in a patch of gray material to put the size stamps on, so they would be visible.
