Rare Austrian "Berndorf" helmet, the only Austrian-designed steel helmet produced by Austro-Hungary during World War II. Manufactured by Arthur Krupp A. G. Berndorf, total production was under 150,000. This example bears the typical "crimped" sides and top vent seen, lacking "Frankenstein bolts" seen in the original the first model. It has obviously been reworked, possibly in the 1920s, as the shell has apparently been repainted and the liner was removed and replaced. Chin strap is not original to the helmet, being a later replacement. A good affordable example, fine for display.
