We are always hunting for the very best examples for our museum. Pictured here are 8 very rare experimental military visor helmets. They were produced in limited quantities between WWI and WWII. Military equipment is not what we normally collect but these have just the right look. • Pictured above are all French helmets. The center helmet is a French Adrian style from 1918. • The helmets below are American and English. Top row-left is a celebrated Model 8 Steel Helmet This experimental helmet features a visor to protect the wearer’s face almost completely. The manufacture of this helmet, was undertaken by Ford Motor Company in November 1918. About 1,300 helmets of this model were produced.
