WW1 French M15 Adrian Helmet.
This second pattern M15, side skirt rivets, has had a nice coat of hand brushed dark coat painted over the factory pale blue finish even to the inside skirt, pale blue can be seen in certain chipped areas. I would say this dark paint is over 90% complete , shell has a couple of knocks from service use. The liner system is complete with chinstrap. The one piece liner is supple enough, dirty from period use and storage and has one hole under one chinstrap bale. Owner has scratched his name to the front inside skirt.I must admit until i took the photos i didnt spot the liner system does not have any of the 4 pins to attached it to the corrugated liner frame so liner sits free inside the shell. A good and nearly untouched WW1 helmet that displays very well.
