WWI U.S. No. 8 Experimental Helmet
Designed in the same basic pattern as the Model 5 shell but with an added full face, movable visor for protection against shrapnel in the trenches. It was put into production by the Ford Motor Co. in 1918 and 1300 were produced. C­onsidered a superb piece of personal armor, it arrived at the war’s close, and never saw combat. This No. 8 is complete with the face shield, liner and chinstrap. A similar example recently sold in Cowan’s Auction for over $6,000.00 plus fees and commission.
