Default Austrian helmet M17 Adolf Westen Cilli

Hello guys !

I just find this Austrian helmet M17 on the net.
Its no doubt original so called ISONZO helmet.
Im only confused because this helmet have just triangel stempel inside some numbers and CILLI ( means town Celje ) and no other markings like usualy AW64 !?
On the upper part of helmet outside its a crest P40 or something !?
All opinions re welcome !
Best Regards
Marko

Hi Marko ,

You have here a very nice helmet.
The triangle Cilli stamp means that this particular helmet was
refurbished at the A.Westen factory in Cilli.

So nothing to worry ! 100% good helmet and stamping !

Regards

Bernhard

Nice helmet for me too! Here is another "Cilli"-stamp from the helmet of a Lt. of "K.u.k. IR 7".

Best, Peter

SUPERB helmet. Get it! I have one like it and kind of like it better than my German M16.
