  9. At that date Army helmets were rough textured on the exterior and smooth on the inside. I can't tell from the pics what the outside is like. Posting bigger individual pics would have helped, but if you have it in the hand you should be able to see. If it is not textured on the outside it is home front, as most helmets of that date were, the Army mostly used the refurbished WWI helmets.

  13. Thanks Dave. Great to see you posting. I always think you cannot overstate the importance of good photo's. I also have this one, w metal on lugs, Queen's crown so only early post 53 I assume, as they must have gone over to AA quite quickly. I think it is fine as I don't think this type has been faked, but that said....

  15. 1941 to 53 white metal on lugs or's
