Germany, Police. An M18 Transitional Austrian Ordnungspolizei Helmet

(Ordnungspolizei-Stahlhelm). Constructed of a single sheet of molybdenum steel (magnetic), painted in olive green paint on the interior and exterior, with a smooth rolled edge along the entire skirt of the helmet and large and pointed rivets, making this a signature M18 helmet. The left side of the helmet is adorned by a traditional police decal, consisting of a national eagle with open wings clutching a mobile wreathed swastika all within a larger oval wreath. The right side of the helmet is adorned by a swastika decal, consisting of a black mobile swastika on a white circular bed within a red background. The interior is missing most of its leather liner, with three leather tabs and the drawstring partially remaining. The chin strap is constructed of blackened leather, with its original metal hardware, and is securely fastened to the metal frame within the helmet.The frame itself is fastened to the helmet via five rivets visible on the exterior of the helmet. It is marked “LGKKT” on the interior. It measures 241 mm (w) x 308 mm (h). With light to moderate scuffing on the exterior and interior, its liner missing, but in overall near very fine condition.
