Description

WWI 77th “Metropolitan” or “Statue of Liberty” Division Insignia & Camouflage Painted British Brodie’s Helmet. Helmet maintains it’s second pattern liner and unbroken leather chinstrap. Helmet remains in overall Fair to Good Condition throughout showing light to moderate signs of age, wear and use. Helmet bears a large 77th Division Statue of Liberty Insignia that is surrounded by dark “wine” red, eggshell beige and “battleship” gray. It almost appears as thought the person painting on the camouflage gave up on the idea or ran out of paint. All colors as well as the painted insignia remain bold and clearly visible. Helmet shell shows several dings and dents to the crown that are visible in the photos. Liner and Chinstrap remain in Good Condition showing visible signs of age and wear with a bit of what appears to be rodent damage to the cotton adjuster webbing. The interior portion of the leather chinstrap has separated on both sides of the crown rivet as can be seen in the photos. Helmet is a bit of an “oddball” but it is certainly not everyday that we come across camouflage and insignia painted 77th Division Helmets. Overall, a rather unique piece that does display quite nicely.
