This is a US Model 1917 helmet from World War I. The helmet has a stainless steel band with the seam in the front. The heat stamp of ZP 38 is visible on the underside of the rim near the seam in the band. The chin strap is present, but the buckle is missing. The liner is still present and shows a ton of wear. The original paint remains inside the helmet, the exterior of the helmet has some original paint showing. Most of the exterior surface has had sand applied to it. I do not think this is a war time application, mostly likely post war. On the left exterior of the helmet is an irregular black shape. It loosely resembles a diamond, and could be a poor attempt at a 5th Infantry Division insignia. This helmet came with no history, so I'm not going to speculate. It still has some good eye appeal, and would look good in any WWI display or helmet collection.
