Hello,

Please opinion about this helmet? Why 2 extra hole under the wappen? If I read correctly it's dated 1914 JR171 22JR Correct?

Thanks a lot.

The two Wappen holes show that a Wappen with a shorter distance between the mounting loops was on the helmet at some point.

That coupled with what appears to be a silvered or polished steel visor trim on a brass fitted helmet would be enough for me to pass on it.
