Introducing the original M-18/40 Swiss Military Helmet, a piece of military history meticulously crafted in Switzerland. This iconic helmet, designed after the German M-16 steel combat helmet, was first produced in 1918 by Gessler/Boesch. With over 603,000 units made, it raised the standards for protection and functionality. The Swiss Military Helmet boasts a distinct matt black textured finish, obtained from a unique blend of paint and granulate sawdust, applied in 1943 to reduce reflectivity during combat. This finish marks the helmet's transition to the M-18/43 variant, alongside upgrades like the innovative 3/4 band leather liner and the quick-release clamp and hook chinstrap, enhancing both comfort and efficiency for the wearer.

Not merely a protective gear, this helmet comes with a reversible M-1931 camouflage cover, featuring the Swiss Sumpfmuster splinter pattern for summer on one side and an autumn pattern on the reverse. This design is a testament to Swiss precision in crafting military equipment that seamlessly blends functionality with strategic combat needs. The three-tongue padded leather liner ensures a secure and comfortable fit, making this helmet not just a collectible but a piece of history you can wear. Named and identifiable through a unique token and marking on the inside, each helmet tells a story of its own, embodying the valor and resilience of the Swiss army during World War II. Condition-wise, both the helmet and camouflage cover are kept in very good condition, preserving their historical value and integrity.
