M1918/43 Swiss Army Helmet
This helmet is the first steel helmet that was issued to the Swiss troops.
The helmet was designed in 1918 and was issued out to the troops around 1924. The original finish was smooth and the headliner was fully circular. In 1940, the helmet shell was very slightly refined and a new production run was made with headliners that were only 3/4 circular.
The paint finish on these M1918/40 helmets was still smooth and green.
In 1943, the helmets were all recalled and a new black, textured paint was applied to the shell.
