    My guess is the German type was first simply because it would be odd for them to pass over an existing model (BW type), modify it to another type (French type), then go back to the original.  It also doesn't make sense to have two different models in full production concurrently.

    Schuberth (note the H at the end) is Germany's most prolific and longest running helmet manufacturers. Er, at least I can't think of another that beats them.

    Seems to me German liner came first, Then there were some conversions done to fit the French liner. After this came more with german liner which retained the German liner but with an added leather loop to form a chin cup that was not part of the original German liner.
